Free Balkan Quintet

Saturday 10/02/2024 from 22:00

Free Balkan Quintet is an ensemble based in Prague who adapt the folk music of the Balkans with dignity and courage. Mixing into it influences of jazz, contemporary music and free improvisation, the unique rhythms and melodies of the East remain more (or less) intact. Imaginative arrangements are concocted by guitar/banjo player Tomáš Mika and Australian accordionist Kieren Alexander, joined by violinist Milan Jakeš, bassist Ondřej Komárek, and Jaroslav Noga on drums (among other things).

Kieren Alexander – acc; Tomáš Mika – g, banjo; Milan Jakeš – vln; Ondřej Komárek – cbs; Jaroslav Noga – dr, toys.

Admission seating CZK 450, standing CZK 270. There is no need to reserve a seat when purchasing a seating ticket.
