LIPA Gallery, 160 East Illinois Street, Chicago, IL 60611
(1/2 block east of Michigan Avenue and 1 block south of Grand)
"Orchestra Roma" is a Gypsy (Cigan) style ensemble that plays a vast repertoire of Central and Eastern European music on Tamburica instruments. The ensemble's instruments are "brac," "kontra," "berde" (bass), guitar, cello, conga drums, and a variety of percussions. The group members have played extensively throughout the United States and Europe and are the only group in Chicago currently playing this unique and expressive style of music.
Come early and view LIPA's exhibit "Memento Mori."
"Lipa" is the slavic word for "linden tree," the traditional gathering place for important events and celebrations, a place for harmony and togetherness. The non-profit gallery LIPA was created in Washington, DC, in 1997, to publicly present socially aware art and discourse. Exhibitions and programs draw works primarily but not exclusively, from Central and Eastern European countries.
Admission: $10 at the door
