The sixth annual Balkan Night Northwest brings a joyous explosion of music, dance and tradition from all over the Balkans to Saint Demetrios Hall (home to the Seattle Greek Festival) on March 4th! Balkan Night pulls ancient traditions into the present, with three stages and dozens of bands, and music that spans the centuries, from Dionysian zournas to fusion dance bands! Come early and stay late to enjoy the Kukeri, the bell-wearing creatures (the friendlier cousins of the Krampus), who will greet the festival and romp throughout the night. The party starts at 3 pm, March 4th, at Saint Demetrios Hall (home of the Seattle Greek Festival), and brings wall-to-wall music until midnight. Kids welcome, no partners necessary!
The vibrant annual festival welcomes the spring and assembles musical traditions from a dozen Balkan countries. Local favorites Dragi Spasovski, Dromeno, the m9, Eurodanceparty USA, and The Fetatones (!) share the bill with this year’s special guests: accordion master Chris Bajmakovich and sax sensation Vlado Pupinoski, returning to get you on the dance floor! Brought to you in part through a generous grant from the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture.
AFTER-PARTY at Sarajevo Loung, March 5, 6-10 pm, all ages! Tickets at Stranger Tickets.
