Event Details

roma_13_front_crop_300Galbeno Band, directed by Dusan Ristic, was formed with a desire to enrich the Bay Area Balkan music scene with tunes that have been long forgotten, the songs its members grew up, celebrated and mourned with. The struggles and happiness of Roma people, Bosnian people, Mediterranean and Middle East people all come together through beautiful songs, some that never reached the main stream. Galbeno Band members hand pick the songs that bring strong emotions and memories, and present them to you.  Helena Alexander will sing, and will be joined by Joe Kirin, T-Rroma's lead singer and tamburasi. Burek, ethnic food and drink will be available.
