The third annual Balkan Night Northwest takes place one music-packed night only this year, at Saint Demetrios Hall in Montlake. This year's event begins at 3 pm, starting with traditional Balkan mummers, Kukeri and Babouyeri, in a Balkan Mardis Gras festivity to celebrate spring and the awakening of the earth, with bagpipes, zournas and more! Balkan Night Northwest brings together an astonishing array of music and dance from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Romania, Croatia, Serbia and Greece, along with the raging sounds of Romany (Gypsy) brass. This years festival showcases Bulgaria, with maestro Kalin Kirlilov with his hand-picked band of Bulgarian master musicians, along with local favorites, Orkestar Zirkonium, Dragi Spasovski, Christos Govetas and Dromeno, The Bucharest Drinking Team, and many, many more.
