Dromeno in Brooklyn!

May 21, 2017 at 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

In town for one night only!

DRÓMENO is a unique folk group presenting regional music from all over Greece and the Balkans. Led by Christos Govetas and Ruth Hunter, long-time players in the Balkan music scene, the group includes both of their kids (Eleni and Bobby Govetas), as well as special guest Mik Bewsky. Drómeno presents authentic music that pulls from deep roots from Greece and all across the Balkans. Between them, these versatile members create the brass sounds of Macedonia, sonorous clarinet and vocal interplay from Ipiros and Thessaly, strident zournas and daouli from Serres, and energetic Thracian dance tunes, and more.

Christos Govetas: voice, clarinet, bouzouki, zourna
Eleni Govetas: saxophone, defi, violin, bass, baghlama, zourna
Ruth Hunter: voice, accordion
Bobby Govetas: drums, daouli
Mik Bewsky: guitar

The evening will begin with a concert, followed by dancing.
All ages, doors at 7:30.
