Kef: Balkan dance party!
August 4, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
Kef brings the sound of the Macedonian Romani brass bands to the Pacific Northwest. Playing a variety of Balkan dance music on trumpets, baritone horns, tuba and drums, the ensemble takes its sound from the wedding bands of the ’70s and ’80s. With occasional excursions into the accordion infused repertoire of Aegean Greece and repertoire from the early days of recorded music in Bulgaria, the power of brass and the intricacy Balkan melodies and rhythms brings joy and energy to any gathering. After all, that’s what Kef means: the spirit of a party.
