While not a Pittonkatonk project, this is definitely something to check out.
Come dance, drink, and celebrate spring! Join Listening Spaces and the Pitt Carpathian Ensemble for a night of traditional and contemporary balkan music and dance. Dance to traditional Macedonian Zurla/Tapan music with master performers Milo Destanovsky, Jessica Ruiz, and Mitko Nikolov along with famed balkan dance leader Alex Markovic. We’ll have locals Bombici as well as special musical guests, improvisations, sing alongs, and open performances (grab an instrument and play with us!).
Admission is sliding $5-$10/pay-what-u-can. All proceeds go to the performing musicians. Refreshments available for purchase.
