BATS Theatre

Celebration of the International Romani Day.

Mehana & Friend’s will celebrate Romani culture and their music.

Through centuries, Romani people travelled from north-west India all the way to Spain, passing through Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Hungary, Slovakia, and France, just to name a few. Their music and dance migrated with them, evolved with local cultures while keeping its ancient spirit at the same time.

Mehana & Friend’s will explore Romani music in the Balkans, as it had a considerable impact on the music of this region.

While attending a Mehana & Friend’s music event, you will probably get very close to the performers, so don’t forget to bring your wide lens, the performers may even draw you into the dance circle.

“The moment a Gypsy performs a non-gypsy tune that tune becomes a Gypsy tune.” - Pattan, Svanibor H. (1992)
