About Fran & Flora

String duo
London
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Fran and Flora are based in London and available for events, performances and recording sessions.

This new collaboration between violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg combines aspects of traditional string music from Eastern Europe with original compositions and experimental electronics. Having performed with Talvin Singh, Sam Lee, Hejira, Floating Points, Jocelyn Pook, Dunajska Kapelye and the London Klezmer Quartet, this project brings together Fran and Flora's shared love of melodic lyricism, groove, improvisation and experimentation. Influenced by Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Celtic and Breton folk and gypsy music, Fran and Flora combine these traditions with their own unique arrangement style to create a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. Their album will be released on Lima Limo Records in 2017.

Green C, 2 years ago

"Fran & Flora gave an intimate and captivating performance to a sold-out crowd. From start to finish the audience were engaged with their presence, humour and music. It was evident the two are deeply connected to the music they perform and the unique twist on the traditional tunes was the creative interplay and relationship between Fran and Flora. We look forward to having them back again!

Francesca and Flora are fiercely passionate about their music and its a passion that they apparently effortlessly communicate to their audience. They transformed the apparently disinterested crowd in the club/cabaret room in which they were performing, to a tearful adoring mass of rapt listeners . They are a winning and magical admixture of instrumental excellence, captivating playing and singing ability, delectable stage presence, supremely well chosen eastern european repertoire and matchless original tunes... This a string duo bound for glory.
