A bacchanale is an orgiastic musical composition, often depicting a drunken revel or bacchanal. Add in some of the best Balkan music and you’ve got a Balkanale!

This month we’re featuring these two fantastic bands!

Gogofski brings you music from the Balkans, from the complex dance rhythms of Macedonia to the heart-wrenching Sevdah song tradition of Bosnia.  Their shows are a mixture of dance and song, all of it hot. Making them perfect for Balkanale!

REVMA passionately displays the living art of traditional Greek music (“Dimotika”), to listening and dancing audiences. Mesmerizing pentatonic and polyphonic Epirot mountain laments and celebrations, lyrical melodies and the “springing” sousta and ballos dances of the Aegean, Dodekanese, and Ionian islands, powerful odd-metered Macedonian and Thracian rhythms, and the delicate modal tones of urban Smyrnaika, are all shaped by a history drenched in struggle, war, migration, resilience, and philotimia, and charged with Greek life-embracing passion and wit.
