UNITY — Fishtank Ensemble, a group playing everywhere from the hippest LA clubs to festivals, cultural centers, museums and even on the street, will perform Friday, Jan. 7, at Unity Centre for the Performing Arts.

Formed in 2005, the quartet features a vocalist who sang opera on the streets and town squares of Italy until she discovered her love of gypsy music; and French violinist who traveled throughout Europe in a handmade mule-drawn caravan for 10 years, collecting music and experiences.

Also, a master of flamenco and gypsy jazz guitar who honed his craft in the gypsy caves of Granada, Spain; and a Serbian bass player who has played with gypsies as well as some rock ‘n’ roll legends, and aptly defends his reputation as one of the best slap bass player in the world.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $15, may be purchased online at www.unityme.org. For more information, call 680-5819.
