Music review: GRUBB in Montreal

The Serbian Gypsy Roma Urban Balkan Beats (GRUBB) directed by Serge Denoncourt performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival on June 27, 2011. Review in ROVER by Megan Stewart.


Amongst the world-famous musicians headlining the Jazz Fest this week, there is one group taking the stage that has never before bathed in so much limelight. The attention is long overdue. The show is GRUBB, the director is theatre luminary Serge Denoncourt, and the stars are 25 underprivileged Roma youth from Serbia. Together, they have created an outstanding musical theatre show unlike any other spectacle in the Jazz Fest lineup.
