San Francisco Tamburitza Festival
Sat - Sun, Feb 16-17, 2008 • 4:00 PM • $15 Donation, children free. Save $5 and come both days!
Although Tamburitza Rroma (T-Rroma) is based in Chicago, its musical roots — and its fan base — spread far beyond that city’s boundaries. Its repertoire, which includes original as well as folk and modern compositions, is as rich and diverse as the culture of the Gypsy (or the preferred “Rom”), from which it takes its name. At every performance, therefore, T-Rroma takes its audience on a compelling worldwide journey that stretches from the Balkans to South America, punctuated from start to finish by everything from hushed and haunting ballads to powerful, pulsating Latin rhythms.
Also performing are: Novi Stari Tamburasi, Slavonian Traveling Band with Lilla Serlegi, Sidro, Dalmacijo Singers, Koraci, Tommy Yeseta and the St. Anthony Tamburica Orchestra of Los Angeles, and Jorgodan Dance Troupe.
There will be a presentation about the History of Tamburitza music and its Romani (Gypsy) influences by Mark Forry at 4PM on Saturday , and a panel discussion with T-Troma at 1PM on Sunday.
A block of rooms at a special group rate has been allocated at Four Points by Sheraton, near SF airport for Friday, Feb 15th - Sunday, Feb 18th. Call 800-368-7764 for reservations before Feb 1
