DRÓMENO pulls from the deep currents of the intertwined traditions of Greece and the Balkans to bring you magnetic harmonies and intoxicating rhythms skipping across the borders of Northern Greece. Headed by Ethnic Heritage Council award-winning couple Christos Govetas and Ruth Hunter on clarinet, accordion, and voices, this group follows the tradition of legacy bands from the Balkans, including their grown children, Eleni and Bobby Govetas on bass, violin, and saxophone. They are joined by Mik Bewsky on guitar, and Nico Sophiea on percussion.  Drómeno: (from ancient Greek) An artistic, social, cultural performance-spectacle, (sometimes dramatized). A cultural event and/or ritual.

Trio Shlyokovitsa brings you traditional Bulgarian folk music with a contemporary flavour. The group is lead by Nathan Bernacki on the gadulka; a thirteen stringed, traditional Bulgarian folk instrument. Enjoy the delivery of hauntingly beautiful melodies which dance so delicately on top of the jazz-informed rhythms conjured by Mik Bewsky on electric guitar and Alex Reid on drums (members of the Vancouver band, Super Krystal). Whether it's dancing, watching, listening, or counting odd-time signatures, Trio Shlyokovitsa will have you absolutely engaged.
