The Flying Carpathians

The Flying Carpathians are a dynamic and evocative band who perform music from Central / Eastern Europe, with West African influences and a unique Australian touch.
The Flying Carpathians features some of Fremantle’s finest musicians, harnessing the energy of the Balkan dance floors, on a dazzling array of instruments ...It’s a flying carpet ride of contagious music!
The Flying Carpathians also teach the circle dances traditionally associated with their music, such as the Greek Miserlou, the Turkish Yaylarlar, the Russian Troika or the popular Israeli dance Hava Nagila.
Learning these dances is a fantastic, accessible way to celebrate, have fun, and build community, creating a vibrant, festive atmosphere.
The Flying Carpathians are: Tony Lane, Sarah Peet, Jamie David and Mark Cain.
Four multi-instrumentalists, playing violin, guitar, cello and saxophone as well as electric bass, mandolin and percussion.
