ORKSTAR ŠLIVOVICA plays high energy Roma-style music and and heart-wrenching songs from the Balkans featuring trumpets, saxophone, driving percussion plus baritone and bass tubas. Wielding battered and ancient instruments and dressed in the highest fashions of your great grandparents' youth, their repertoire includes tunes from Serbia, Macedonia and other mysterious and distant lands.

BYZANTINE BLUE - With a heavy ethno-fusion sound that's a melodic, emotionally-driven synthesis of multi-cultural sounds, this Vancouver-based Balkan-gypsy-rock-trio was brought together by a love of Frank Zappa, south-eastern Balkan soul music and Saban Bajramovic, the most popular and influential Serbian singer of his generation.

ROMA GRY is a Vancouver-based gypsy performance troupe that brings the culture, music, and dance of the Romani people alive in a celebration of dance. Their colourful, unique costumes add ambiance and authenticity to every performance and make their events unforgettable.
