Steeped in the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Häns’che Weiss and Titi Winterstein, MARIO TRISKA is a legend of gypsy music. Mario studied classical music at the conservatories in Maastricht and Brussels. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved music. It’s part of who I am. My people are a people of music. For generations, passion has been flowing in the veins of the gypsies, delighting people with warmth of heart and intensity.” MARIO TRISKA, the devil’s violinist, has played on major stages worldwide. He has mastered his instrument like few others and had a joint creative period with ANDRÉ RIEU. MARIO plays Hungarian gypsy music with his ensemble. In order to meet his own exacting standards, the list of his fellow musicians during this tour reads like a Who’s Who of European gypsy musicians. Each individual is a multi-award-winning musician. But one thing is for sure: the arrow from Mario’s bow will surely hit the heart of anyone with a love of music. His mission is to bring the history and culture of the gypsies to life. His musical performance is accompanied by pictures in the form of a multimedia show. The pictorial material ranges from the origin of the Sinti and Roma people in India, their long journey to Europe, their persecution and suffering and their history and culture, right up to the current day.
