Music and dances of the Balkans

The repertoire of Balkan Music includes frenetic rhythms, call and response songs, polyphonic songs and enchantingly rousing folk dances.

We offer a group choir class, as well as a monthly music workshop, singing and dancing for all ages and levels of skill. We also sometimes hold cultural events which combine interaction with the artists and musical performances.

Learn to play an instrument based on an oral tradition to:

  • Gain experience with a specific culture
  • Train your memory
  • Promote manual and intellectual learning
  • Effectively develop the ear and musical skills
