[quote_box_center]One of the Songlines Magazine top rated albums of 2013 was Romanian singer Oana Cătălina Chiţu’s ‘Divine[quote_box_center]

Romanian songs from the repertoire of Maria Tănase’, a touching musical homage to legendary Maria Tănase (1913-1963), also known as ”the Romanian Edith Piaf”. With her rich, smoky voice and dramatic presence, Oana Cătălina Chiţu makes her Kings Place debut bringing Maria Tănase’s repertoire back to life together with a fabulous virtuoso band: Dejan Jovanovic – accordion, Vladimir Karparov – saxophone, Valeriu Caşcaval – cymbalon and Dimitris Christides – drums.

The Romanian singer and her band will recreate the voluptuous air of the Paris of the East – Bucharest in the 1930’s.

The Romanian Cultural Institute in London supports Oana Cătălina Chiţu’s participation at the Songlines Encounters Festival, which takes place at Kings Place between 5 and 7 June 2014
