We’re very excited to welcome back Kala for their 2nd performance at the Bacchanal. Kala is a Bay Area based Romani Balkan band featuring strings, accordions, clarinet and percussion. Led by Roma musician Dusan Ristic, and in collaboration with some of your favorite local musicians, Kala performs traditional Roma songs from the Balkan region. Ristic was raised in a Roma neighborhood in Valjevo, Serbia and comes from a family of Roma musicians. He has found a new home in the Bay Area and brings an authentic traditional flavor to the vibrant Balkan scene.

Bacchanal favorites Fanfare Zambaleta play 2 sets of their wild brand of Balkan Brass Band insanity! Fanfare Zambaleta was incubated in the Zambaleta Music and Dance School in San Francisco and has since hit the streets as a full-fledged 11 piece juggernaut of a band playing exciting Romani, Serbian, Macedonian, and Greek Brass music with passion and dedication and featuring some of the Bay Area’s most exciting young players and seasoned veterans.
