What a week!
Balkan Beat master SHANTEL plays his Vancouver debut on Wednesday, and ELECTROPICAL kick-starts summer this Saturday.
An Electropical favourite, Shantel (Disko Partizani; Planet Paprika) has taken concerts halls, clubs, and festivals in Europe by storm since the early 2000s with his unique take on traditional Balkan music and club nights. The German producer / musician / DJ performs a DJ session this Wed June 13 at the Red Room along with Turkish DJs Burinata Duo, Beats Without Borders DJ Lady Ra, and belly dancer Rahel. More info and links to tix here and here.
And this Sat June 16, ELECTROPICAL starts summer early with our sun-infused mix of urban sounds with a tropical edge.
Cheers, spread the word, and see you Wednesday and Saturday!
The cool, wet weather continues, so it’s time to summon the sun. Here’s my musical equivalent of a sun dance. Enjoy!
