Folk Dance Party with Kabile

October 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Kabilé takes its name from the village of that name in Thrace, Bulgaria, where the band played one of their earliest gigs. They have since become renowned for their "bitov" (traditional) style and are popular and in demand from coast to coast. Kabile features five master musicians: Donka Koleva (vocals), Nikolay Kolev (gadulka), Ivan Handzhiev (vocals and accordion), Dzhenko Andreev (gaida), and Nikolay Doktorov (kaval).
Everyone is welcome to come dance and/or just listen to the fabulous music. Admission is $10, and includes refreshments.
