Since 2003 Balkanicus Institute for Balkan Art, Culture and History (BIBACH) has organized eleven successful annual concerts of Balkan chamber music in Minneapolis, and has brought to the Twin Cities three contemporary composers who wrote special pieces for the Balkanicus ensemble. The ensemble is made up of Bulgarian cellist Nickolai Kolstov, the ensemble’s founder, clarinetist Pat O’Keefe, and pianist Jill Dawe. Each of these concerts presents to the audience a glimpse of an unfamiliar and uncommon cultural aspect of the Balkans—the modern chamber music from this region. Balkanicus will continue to do that for our audience and our dedicated followers from the community—people from Balkan descent, music lovers, and professionals.

The award winning and highly acclaimed band Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement. The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing it’s hard-driving soulful music (rooted in the Celtic diaspora) with a broad range of global influences. Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes.” — Boston Herald
