“Anti Von Klewitz and her band play music from the heart of Eastern Europe. She has absorbed gypsy music from around the Balkans and explores the essence of the music in an enthralling way, fusing styles and trends with passion, humour, and a voice that can grab you – and this with a band that can occasionally really rock!”

- Byron Foulger, Blues & Rhythm
