Robi Botos: Romani Experience

Sunday, November 29, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

JUNO Award-winning multi-instrumentalist and composer Robi Botos takes you on a deeply personal journey through the story of his heritage. Born and raised in Budapest prior to bringing his family to Canada, Botos has remained dedicated in his efforts of bringing the often forgotten history of the Roma genocide during the Holocaust to the surface. Through a suite of selections from his acclaimed score from ‘A People Uncounted’ and the debut of a new piece commissioned by Bravo Niagara!, Botos’ glimpse into his heritage with a call for justice for his people will be told through his unmistakable sound that will resonate with all generations.
