Lorca, you and me is a blend of poetry, music and dance from Roma region in Spain, the Balkans and Eastern Europe, created by Slovenian vocalist and musician Katja Šulc and flamenco dancer Urska Centa. On double bass they are joined by acclaimed jazz musician Robert Jukič.
The project is inspired by a poet, for whom the Roma is ‘the highest, the deepest and the most aristocratic in his country’. The artists explore the rich cultural tradition of Roma people, giving it a contemporary twist. The repertoire includes poetry by Lorca, Sor Juane Inés de la Cruz, Papuzsa, Rajko Djurić, contemporary Romani poets from the Balkans and Eastern Europe and some traditional Romani songs. The unique combination of dance, music and poetry is drawing upon the mysteriousness of Roma symbolics, the primarity, fate, duende.
