Balkan Music &
Dance Workshops
Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to offer our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered.

Registration is now open for East Coast Virtual Camp on August 14-16, 2020, with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. This camp is geared toward the USA East Coast and will run on Eastern Time (UCT-0400).

Join Gradina, Sonoma County's Balkan music ensemble, at a benefit for Love Without Borders, an art show and sale, concert, and dance with all funds going directly to the artist refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea, and surrounding areas who are now in Greek refugee camps. There is a wonderful assortment of artwork styles with something for everyone’s taste and budget!

With Ken Genetti, tambura and hammer dulcimer; Natalie Hicks, tambura; Tabitha Doniach, violin; and Jana Mariposa Muhar, accordion, tambura, and percussion. Donation $10. Please carpool or use transit, as parking is limited. (Note: It’s next to the SMART Train station in Railroad Square, just north of Aroma Roasters.)
