Balkan Music Night 2016

March 19, 2016 at 7:00 pm – March 20, 2016 at 1:30 am

The Folk Arts Center of New England presents the 31st annual Balkan Music Night: a vibrant celebration of the rich musical traditions of the Balkans, and an immersive experience in music, dance, culture, and community. Join several hundred Balkan enthusiasts in the Boston area to revel in the exhilarating rhythms and soulful melodies of Bulgaria, Macedonia, Greece, Albania, Serbia, and more.

The impressive roster of performers includes powerful vocalists and dynamic instrumentalists, renowned Balkan-born artists and accomplished American-born devotees, local favorites and guest bands, all brought together for one extraordinarily bountiful night of dancing and listening pleasure: Sophia Bilides, Lefteris Bournias, Bulgarika, Dolunay, Gogofski, Kavala, Mierlitsa, Odglasi, Skaros, Dragi Spasovski, Elitsa Stoyneva, Zdravets, Zlatne Uste, and Zurli Društvo.

You can dance all night in the spacious dance hall, moving to the non-stop, big-band sounds of pounding drums, funky brass, soaring clarinets, and wailing bagpipes. Or you can settle into the concert seating of the intimate kefana, listening to acoustic performances by the finest soloists and small ensembles. Or you can switch between dancing and listening as the spirit, and each 40-minute set, moves you.

You can also hang out in the friendly lobby, chatting with other Balkan music fans, shopping for music at the Little Shop of Horas, and helping yourself to the generous spread of free food and drink provided to sustain you during 6+ hours of intensely Balkan fun.
