Balkan Strings Trio performs its original instrumental music which is a fusion of traditional Balkan rhythms and melodies, jazz improvisations, and stunning virtuoso technique. The result is rich and unconventional, fresh and spontaneous, brimming with energy. Some say, “their music is like a handmade rug, colorful and full of beautiful ornaments”.

We hope you will be able to join us and, just for a moment, take a musical journey to the exotic countries of Balkans. Appetizers will be served and there will be ethnic dancing until midnight.
