Disciples of Markos bring their classic Rebetika back to the Bacchanal for the first time since last year. The underworld songs from 1930s Greece tell the stories of knife fights, love, prison, and of course, hashish!




Rumen Shopov is a Bay Area legend in the Balkan scene and here he’ll lead his own ensemble for the first time at the Bacchanal!




Radio Istanbul is a super group whose members are in so many excellent bands it would be impossible to list them all here. This powerhouse group plays Turkish and Romani street music and will definitely rock the house!
