EEFC and DROM present the 6th Annual Golden Festival Afterparty.

January 17, 2016 at 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Come dance to great bands and support the youth of the Balkan Music and Dance community in the US! This is the event's second year as a benefit for the Čoček Nation Youth Scholarship to the annual Iroquois Springs Balkan Music and Dance Workshop. Last year we made enough for 2 half-scholarships--this year, let's make sure we have at least enough to provide that again!

FEATURING:
* Čoček Nation
* Friends of Dragi Spasovski (AKA Odglasi)
* Eva Salina & Peter Stan
* Special Guests from Austria (this is a wonderful ensemble of Balkan Ex-Pat musicians who are here on a tourist visa so we can't publicize their name--but they are AMAZING!)

This event runs till 9, after which the incredible trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf plays and then the infamous NY Gypsy All-Stars, so make it a fantastic evening at DROM!

$10 dollars at the door ($5 with goldenfest wristband) BUT this is a benefit for a scholarship funds so please consider making additional donations.
