POP Concert: Balkan Kafana

The Urban Forest

Join us in the Urban Forest for a serie of eight free summer concerts in partnership with POP Montréal featuring up-and-coming groups. Come listen to a new one each week at 12:30 p.m. on Victoria Street!

This week’s concert

August 17, 2016: Balkan Kafana

Balkan Kafana is a festive band formed in Montreal. They cover a large repertoire of folk and traditional songs from the many countries of Eastern Europe.The mixture of musicians’ different influences and background create a proper tone to the band. Authentic improvisations, soloists bring waves of exotic atmosphere. Both keyboards define a surprising harmonic course with characteristic scales, foreign modes, not to mention the many “trills”. With original arrangements, melodic texture of traditional instruments, contrasting dances and rhythms, concerts are inflamed, energetic and memorable. It’s the kind of music that comes directly from people’s hearts which enters the imagination of the audience.
