Wander down the Angel Place laneways and follow your curiosity inside the doors of City Recital Hall. Discover our intimate and late evening series, Ears to the Ground, where tunes go down well with a drink in hand.

Ears to the Ground is a new evening series where contemporary bands and artists can take over the ground level stage for a night of their music – whatever that may be. Each night will be taken over by a new artist and sound for you to discover and this November we have Lolo Lovina. 

Lolo Lovina ('Red Beer') are an intoxicating brew infused with Balkan Gypsy beats, unza, cabaret, heavy metal, swing and tango. Fronted by Australian born Romani-Gypsy singer & actress Sarah Bedak, Lolo Lovina's music reflects the cosmopolitan identity of an artist who grew up with three native cultures. The charming and passionate performance of their charismatic singer and the high voltage energy of the band makes each concert a unique experience. Lolo Lovina's album Rroma Sapien received a four star review in the London based World Music magazine Songlines (June 2016)
with Rroma Sapien and RromAntcis both being featured albums on ABC Radio Nationals program The Daily Planet, Lolo Lovina are an eternal Gypsy party that never sleeps, where anything is possible and where cynicism and mistrust are overcome by love and unity.

This concert is held in the City Recital Hall ground level foyer and bar. Seating is arranged in a cocktail/lounge style and is general admission. The bar is open to ticket holders from 6pm.
