Romashka is a driving force in NYC's burgeoning gypsy and balkan music scene, playing gypsy and folk music from Russia, Romania, the Balkans, and beyond. Lithuanian-born singer Inna Barmash fronts a band nine wildly versatile NY musicians. Romashka has a violin, viola, accordion, guitar, trumpet, clarinet/saxophone, tuba, and percussion. Based in New York, the band was born in fits and torrents in the fall of 2003. Roaming from cafes and all-night jams, to apartment parties and subway stops, the band quickly catapulted to pulsating clubs and underground parties, drawing a loyal - and swiftly growing - following from downtown party revelers and outer-borough-dwelling ethnic communities alike.
