Greg Masaki Jenkins is a second-generation American Balkan folk dancer who grew up at the Balkan Music & Dance Workshops. He gigs regularly throughout the San Francisco Bay Area with the groups Agapi Mou, Helios, MWE, and Fanfare Zambaleta, and is a regular host of the Balkan Sundays Jam at Cafe Revolution. Helios, in particular, has provided him countless hours playing Greek music of different regions and from eras where clarinets, violins, and bouzoukis hold hands and play together in perfect harmony. His teaching experience outside of the Mendocino Workshop includes the Zambaleta school in San Francisco, Balkanalia!, and the San Francisco Kolo Festival. Greg lives in Oakland, California.
