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!

Vedran Boškovski

Macedonian Kaval

Vedran Boškovski, who’s been a resident of Brooklyn for the past 12 years, was born and raised in Macedonia, where in his college years he studied traditional instruments and the folklore of Macedonia, and of Macedonians who live throughout the neighboring regions. He was a member of gajda master Pece Atanasovski’s student orchestra, and the čalgija ensemble Kaldrma, and took part in other projects and collaborations, most notably with legendary traditional singer Vanja Lazarova and kaval master Angele Dimovski, and as a guest musician for the Macedonian cult avant-garde rock band Mizar.

Upon his arrival in the States, he was introduced to the Balkan music scene in the New York City area, where in time he founded and led several bands. Currently he’s a member of the duo Glas, which focuses on the singing tradition of Macedonia; and the group Loza, which performs Macedonian and Roma vocal and instrumental/dance music.
