NORTH BEACH FIRST FRIDAYS: Near-East Bay

Please join us on Friday, April 4th at 8pm for a special evening with Near-East Bay!

alt band photo 72Drawing musical inspiration from Turkey, Greece, and the Balkan Peninsula, Near-East Bay delivers a driving and invigorating musical experience.  The new ensemble pushes the boundaries of near eastern music by adding influences from their own unique musical backgrounds. By combining the sounds of the oud (a Turkish lute), the violin, the clarinet, the tapan (a double sided drum), and flamenco guitar, one immediately hears how Near-East Bay takes music from the Balkan regions and pushes this deep musical tradition to a new edge.  The /Bay’s/ are Haluk Kecelioglu, Lars Tergis, Calvin Lai, Gopal Slavonic, and Ivan Velev.

Don’t miss this event, which is part of North Beach First Fridays. You can reserve your seat here.
