Strut, in conjunction with Ambassadors Reception and Future Nuggets, presents the first ever retrospective of fabled band Rodion G.A., one of Romania’s best kept musical secrets of the last 30 years.

It was quite hard to walk to the chalet as the road is going up and up, but the weather was so fine and nature was getting back to life that it turned out to be quite an enjoyable walk.
