Now in its 35th 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, many hundreds of Balkan enthusiasts from all backgrounds have gathered annually in the Boston area to revel in the exciting rhythms and soulful melodies of Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, 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.  For more pictures, videos, and details about the event, click here to go to the Balkan Music Night page.

You can dance all night in the spacious dance hall, moving to the non-stop sounds of soaring clarinets, dramatic drumming, funky brass, exquisite fiddling, and wailing bagpipes.

Or you can settle into the concert seating of the intimate upstairs kefana (kefi = elevated mood), and listen to splendid acoustic performances by some of the finest soloists and small ensembles around.

Or you can switch between dancing and listening as the schedule moves you!

You can also hang out in the friendly lobby, chatting with other Balkan music fans, shopping for CDs and DVDs at the Little Shop of Horas, and helping yourself to the complimentary refreshments, cold drinks, and hot coffee provided to sustain you during six hours of intensely Balkan fun.

The Folk Arts Center of New England and the Balkan Music Night Committee invite you to come dance, listen, and celebrate with us!
