Bansko Bohemi Balkan Festival 2016 is back for the second year. Bansko’s main square on the 3rd and 4th September will be filled with a special style of music.
There is an interesting fusion of modern instruments with Balkan music. It’s a style of music that’s played throughout the region that includes Greece, Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria.
Renowned Serbian trumpeter Kristijan Azirović and his orchestra are much looked forward to as is Bosnian songwriter and composer Edin Dervišhalidović, better known as Dino Merlin. Also be sure to see Magnifico, a Slovenian musician of Serbian descent.
There will regional food and wine to taste around the main square.
