Event Description

Victoria Folk Music Society weekly gathering; Everyone welcome jam 6:45pm,  Open Stage 7:30pm, Feature Performers Balkan Babes and Novo Drom at 9pm; Norway House, 1110 Hillside Avenue, $8 cash at the door

The singers of the award-winning Victoria-based Balkan Babes are dedicated to both the intricate music of the Balkan region and to the challenging and highly rewarding process of operating as a collective with no director. Singing together for 25 years, they have released three full length records since 1999, all to warm reviews!

Drawn to the penetrating harmonies, asymmetric rhythms, unusual ornamentations, and powerful emotions that characterize the rich and timeless folk music of Eastern Europe, Balkan Babes strive for an authentic sound in vocal production and pronunciation while opening up many songs through their own interpretations and arrangements.

Novo Drom, also from Victoria, features both instruments and vocals, bringing new life into Balkan and Romani classics with their four-part harmonies and driving melodies.

Both bands are proud to be active members of Vancouver Island's music, arts, and culture communities and are greatly looking forward to presenting selections from these captivating musical traditions to the VFMS audience.
