Golonka play wild, beautiful gypsy music: some of it from Eastern Europe, much of it their own. These are songs and melodies that tell of the stars and the moon, of love and of death, and that make an audience want to madly dance.
Golonka is five players from diverse backgrounds who have performed on an international level in Australia, Europe, the Americas and Asia. These musicians are experienced a number of styles and have played with musicians from all over the world. Each is recognised as being exceptional on their instruments and have carved out unbelievably brilliant individual careers. They bring this experience and expertise to the group to create a new flavour on music of a bygone era. Golonka features Belinda Gehlert on violin, Dylan Woolcock on vocals, guitar and mandolin, Quincy Grant on clarinet and guitar, Gareth Chin on accordion, and Harley Gray on double bass. Their latest CD, The Travellers, is being released in October, 2012.
