Announcing the first ever Philadelphia festival of Balkan music and culture! The Folk Dance Council of the Delaware Valley in conjunction with Fly Bottle Records are proud to present
Philly BalkanFest 2019!
Philly boasts a rich tapestry of communities of Balkan and Roma (Gypsy) heritage, and artists and artisans creating in the Balkan and Roma traditions. It’s time we got together to celebrate these beautiful traditions in a festival of the living arts and culture of the Balkans, Philly style.
The festival will take place at The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut Street, from 2 - 7 pm on April 7, 2019. We have assembled a full program with events all afternoon, taking over the whole building with non-stop music performances in both the concert stage room and the spectacular dance hall beneath the great rotunda, plus food trucks, dance workshops, and more spanning the Balkan folk traditions, and beyond!
Featuring performances by:
Philadelphia Women's Slavic Ensemble
West Philadelphia Orchestra
