The show will pay homage to Romani music from around the world; Manouche Gypsy swing, Romanian, Russian and Serbian Romani music, as well as original Lolo Lovina original compositions. Instrumentation will be horn and string sections, a 5 piece Manouche Gypsy Swing guitar section with soloists being Matthew Ottignon (Tim Minchin) saxophone, Leonid Beshlei (Monsieur Camembert) on accordion & piano and solo guitar.

The backdrop stage will be Lolo the Gypsy Caravan Stage; a bespoke, culturally on point, installation art stage created by Lolo Lovina band leader Sarah Bedak.
