Janam: Dark Side of Love

Please join us for a midwinter evening of dark love songs at the wonderful Red Poppy Art House. Hope you can make it out for this very intimate concert.

$10-20 sliding scale

Fusing funky Balkan rhythms, gritty Appalachian ballads, inspired originals, arresting vocal harmonies and enchanting acoustic textures, Janam creates a one-of-kind musical experience. Janam unites some of the Bay Area's most playful and imaginative devotees of southern Balkan and American roots music who weave together folk tunes and their own colorful compositions and take their audience on a stirring and labyrinthine musical ride.

Janam features Dan Auvil~percussion and voice, Tom Farris~laouto, guitar and percussion, Juliana Graffagna~voice and accordion, and Gari Hegedus~oud, saz and mandocello.
