We are sorry but this event is now SOLD OUT.
"Balkan Voices" - She'Koyokh & Monooka (Romania) & Angelina Kasabova (Bulgaria)
Lead vocalist Çiğdem Aslan (Turkey), is joined by special guest singers from Romania and Bulgaria, displaying their expertise and virtuosic skills in a wealth of regional and national styles that include polyphonic Bulgarian singing from the heart of the Balkan mountains, a dramatic Ottoman dance in a 9/8 rhythm known as the father 'Rom’, a Sevdah song from the former Yugoslavia entitled ‘My Pigeon’ and spirited songs from the villages of Transylvania. Melancholic, heart-warming, uplifting and ecstatically danceable music, leaving more than a hint of brandy in the air.
