A bacchanale is an orgiastic musical composition, often depicting a drunken revel or bacchanal. Add in some of the best Balkan music and you've got a Balkanale!

Aya Safiya is an accomplished singer, songwriter and violinist who specializes in interpreting traditional songs from the Mediterranean, the Rromani diaspora, and island cultures. With her hauntingly beautiful and emotional voice, she captivates her listener and puts her audience in a spell. Sarma Brass Band is a 10-piece Balkan Brass Band that evokes the energetic grooves and soaring melodies of the Balkan Roma. The band draws upon founder/leader Tano Brocks upbringing in the Balkan music scene in Northern California, as well as his travels and studies throughout the Balkans.

Aya Safiya is an accomplished singer, songwriter and violinist who specializes in interpreting traditional songs from the Mediterranean, the Rromani diaspora, and island cultures. With her hauntingly beautiful and emotional voice, she captivates her listener and puts her audience in a spell. Aya fell in love with music the moment her father handed her a violin at age 6, and went on to study traditional Greek island violin intensively for over 20 years. However, she didnt limit herself to violinshe soon discovered singing and began to cultivate her voice. With guidance from master vocalists such as Eva Salina, Katerina Papadhopoulou, Kina Mendez, Merita Halili and many others, Aya has discovered her own voice within traditional music. She started performing as a vocalist at age 15, and has gone on to perform at Greek festivals in both the US and Greece, as well as at renowned venues such as The Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, The Great American Music Hall in SF, the Grand Prospect Hall in NYC, and the House of Blues in Boston. Bay Area-born and currently based in Boston, Aya has traveled to the Balkans, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Okinawa, and Cuba in search of not only music, but also a deeper understanding of the traditions from which the music comes. She performs with numerous groups including Agapi Mou, Romantique, Sarma Brass Band, Taraf de Locos, The Aya & Tano Collective, and has recently been developing her solo set in collaboration with musicians from the vibrant international music scene in Boston.
