About the group:

The combination of two strong groups, results in music with a full spectrum of sound and color. The instrumentation dovetails like the pieces of a global musical puzzle. Artistic personalities sparkle, inducing an incredible power. Music dictates the thrill of imagination and takes an international trip in the Indian spiritual paths of the Gypsies. Multiinstrumentalists and brother, Kamil and Konrad Rogińscy, create authentic ethnic sounds from around the world. Light, freedom and joy of playing is the main feature of the concert.

The guiding principle of the meeting of the Dhoad Gypsies of Rajasthan and Orchestra RIVENDELL is a Polish-Indian friendship. DHOAD-RIVENDELL is a bridge over any intercultural divides. The diversity of cultures and religions are the world's great treasures which should unite and not divide.
