The Balkanistas are a Wellington collective of 20+ musicians putting their own twisted spin on Eastern European gypsy music. Musicians from all over the world combine into a thunderous ball of raucous gypsy fury, sending infectious dance rhythms into an unsuspecting crowd.

With an energetic mix of overlapping musical origins including brass band, gypsy virtuoso and traditional themes, material can reappear as Ska and disco interpretations or just plain flat out dance!
