Balkan Ensemble - Magic Music Classes
Learn devilish music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans
Wednesday evenings from 7:00 til 8:45pm.
Lively sessions of learning and rehearsing a colourful music mixture from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, in straight and ‘weird’ time-signatures, from folk and Rromany traditions. We study various songs and pieces which contain the famous ‘must-play’ tunes as well as unknown and rare treasures.
