On Wednesday, May 13th, from 7:30 – 9:30pm, you’re invited to experience the sounds of Gypsy and Eastern European music and song with performances by three prolific musical artists. The six-member band, The Petrojvic Blasting Company, plays brass music from Southeastern Europe and Romania. The Cory Beers Cimbalom Band performs music from the Eastern European region traditionally known as Bessarabia. Romamian Gypsies, Jews, Germans, Turks, and Slavs inhabited this region for centuries, with each culture contributing to the rich sound of the folk music of the region. Nevenka Folk Ensemble is a Los Angeles-based women’s folk chorus of all ages performing songs from Eastern Europe including songs from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia, Albania, Russia, Greece, and Georgia, as well as Ladino Sephardic and the Gypsies. Bring a picnic and enjoy the allure of these unique artists at Tongva Park’s Gathering Hill.
