18th May - Balabam
Bandini opens RAKA LiVE | Double Bill
We are very happy to announce another double bill live in Balabam! A night of two great performances by Bandini and RAKA!
RAKA are an exciting 9 piece Balkan collective who bring you a heavy dose of upbeat Balkan music destined to drag you from your seats. Focusing deeply on the traditional folk music of Bulgaria and Macedonia, they also bring varied styles from the Romani communities of Eastern Europe. They have created a program of unheard and interesting repertoire fused together with new energetic arrangements promised to create a vibrant and exciting atmosphere.
Bandini is an exciting new contemporary artist, who through his reimagining of fusion music has successfully incorporated aspects of jazz, blues, rock and gypsy into a unique sound. Coupled with his enigmatic and theatrical stage performances, Bandini is quickly becoming one of the most relevant emerging acts today.
Through his rugged, intimate vocal approach with the use of piano and harmonica he achieves a unique blend of magnetism; transforming his already dynamic musical output into a mesmerizing theatre show.
Music starts at 9pm
