GRUBB4GRUBB (Gypsy Roma Urban Balkan Beats) are a collective of young Roma and international artists. They offer a modern approach to the traditional music of their Romani roots. Combining a musical blend of contemporary hip hop and pop with the richly influenced and historic music already synonymous with their ancestors, GRUBB are bringing Roma music storming into the 21st century. The music, however, is only the backdrop to an immersive and moving story of their lives that varies from the universal themes of first loves and friendships to the struggles that are unique to the Romani people.
 
GRUBB has grown from music workshops created by RPOINT (an NGO working to give young Roma access to education) led by Serge Denoncourt. It is the first performance of it’s kind, performed by its creators, a group whose voices have never before been heard.

Because those who have no voice should be able to sing.
Because education is the shortest route to emancipation.
Because art is a homeland for those who have none.
Because there should be a dialogue between the Romany people and the rest of the world.
Because it is high time that Romanies under twenty had the opportunity to tell us what they are and what they aren’t.
Because indifference kills more people than all the bombs in the world.
Because it is no longer acceptable to act as if the segregation of Romanies does not exist.
Because it is no longer acceptable to act as if they do not exist.
Because it is important to go beyond clichés and trite generalizations.
Because we are not always the Gypsies you would like us to be.
Because we have something to say to you and we invite you to hear it.

For all these reasons…
