Balkan Night 2019Presented by The Folk Arts Center of New England
Now in its 34th year, Balkan Music Night is a vibrant celebration of the rich musical traditions of the Balkans, and an immersive experience in music, dance, culture, and community. Since 1986, several hundred Balkan enthusiasts of all backgrounds have gathered annually in the Boston area to revel in the exciting rhythms and soulful melodies of Bulgaria, Macedonia, Greece, Albania, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Romania, Turkey, and more.
The impressive roster of performers includes powerful vocalists and dynamic instrumentalists, renowned Balkan-born artists and accomplished American-born devotees, local favorites and guest bands, all brought together for one extraordinarily bountiful night of dancing and listening pleasure.
You can dance all night (from when the doors open until the wee hours) in the spacious dance hall, moving to the non-stop, big-band sounds of pounding drums, funky brass, soaring clarinets, and wailing bagpipes.
