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 have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

Söndörgö - Hungarian tambura band in Eugene

April 9, 2016 at 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Traditional Balkan music–without the heavy brass. Five-member Hungarian ensemble Söndörgo is a tamburitza band representing the best of Southern Slavic folk music. Hailed as “one of Europe’s most versatile and exciting bands,” (Songlines Magazine) Söndörgo’s repertoire includes pieces gathered by Béla Bartók, Tihamér Vujicsics, and other greats from their country’s traditional heritage. Centered on the mandolin-esque tambura, their performances also include accordion and wind instruments. With their goal of sharing “the delicate beauty and fizzing power of a different Balkan sound,” Söndörgo’s captivating performance opens the door to this little-known world and offers a deeper appreciation for the diversity of Hungarian music.
