Balkan Dance with Zabava International
September 20 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$12
Live Balkan music and dancing to Bill Cope and Zabava International! It’s a party night, so snacks and drinks are welcome, as are tips for the band. We are also celebrating John Burke’s 75th birthday!
Energetic, soulful, and rhythmically dazzling music played from the center of the dance floor–music from Albania, America, Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Macedonia, Norway, the Romani, Romania, Serbia, South Africa, Sweden and Turkey traditions. The musicians recreate the vibrant interplay of traditional music and dance from the cultural crossroads.
