About Tatcho Drom

Tatcho Drom stage a vibrant show packed full of beautiful melodies and dancing rhythms from Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

Tatcho Drom are considered one of the UK’s leading exponents of Balkan Folk music. Their broad repertoire includes traditional music from across Eastern Europe and the Balkans as well as band leader's Gundula Gruen’s own original compositions. Inspired by Gundula’s extensive field research, her creations are consistent in providing an authentic sound. With Tatcho Drom, you can expect a vibrant show packed full with beautiful melodies and dancing rhythms from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. I believe this act would be a perfect fit for the Denholm Folk Festival, as it merges the core elements that people love about folk with something new and different. Gundula Gruen, the band's leader, is also available to run interactive workshops. These can cover anything from singing, percussion, music, and even dance! Suitable for any age, these are a really fun addition to any festival and a sure fire way to get people involved.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our 5-people line up is Violin/vocals, accordion, guitar, cello and percussion. We also could provide a dancer. All small line-ups will always include violin vocals, the rest of the instruments will be discussed and chosen for the type of event, if more listening or more dancing, how big the place, how many guests, and which style will be primarily featured

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Get in touch as early as you can. Best is, to give notice at the time of discussion, so we can keep a small amount of flexibility. Most of the time, a change of an hour is no problem, and if the sets within the evening should change length and time, this is no issue either. Communication is the key, and we do what we can to make your event the best it can be

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We can provide backing tracks. Our own music we can play for free in-beween our live sets. Your music can also be plugged in and played for no extra costs. Customised play lists will have an extra fee, please get in touch to discuss.

How much time do you need to set up?

usually 90 minutes, but if timings are tight, we can do it in 60 minutes also.

Can you roam around while you perform?

The violinist/singer regularly roams when performing, and the occasion seems suitable. The remaining band only can roam when playing acoustically, the cello can not roam...

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

yes, special requests are always possible from our set lists. if you have a favourite song or piece, and you tell us in advance, there is a good chance we can perform it for you.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

with enough notice we can learn your favourite songs. If the request is easy, we do it for free, if it is complex and long, we may charge for this service.

From customers:

Concert A, 8 years ago

Dear Gundula -- A short note to say how much I enjoyed the concert today in St George's, Bristol. From where I and my partner were sitting it was quite spectacular as well as musically exhilarating. I appreciate that you & your colleagues will go on to other events and venues but be assured that your memory burns brightly here in this part of Bristol.

Outdoor G, 9 years ago

“We particularly enjoyed the parade through the audience and it was a delight to watch people of all ages and backgrounds joining in.”
