Homage to Trakiyskata Troyka

January 9, 2016 at 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

For many years, Trakiyskata Troyka (Thracian Trio) was one of the top ensembles playing Bulgarian folk music. It featured Stoyan Velichkov on kaval (shepherd’s flute), Mihail Marinov on gadulka (upright fiddle), and Roumen Sirakov on tambura (4-course lute).

Thanks to a Seattle visit in January by Michigan-based gadulka player Bruce Sagan, Cafe Paloma is proud to present an evening of songs and instrumentals in the style of Trakiyskata Troyka. This dinner show will also feature Teodora Dimitrova on vocals and tambura, and David Bilides on kaval. To enjoy this rare opportunity, make your reservation now for a delightful evening of wonderful music and delicious food and drink. $12 cover plus fabulous dinner and drink from the Café Paloma menu.

Very limited seating! — RESERVATIONS: (206) 405-1920
