Every year around this time, the Balkans come to Brooklyn. The high-octane dance music of the gypsy brass bands of Macedonia and Serbia, the startling harmonies of Bulgarian folk song, and the melancholy beauty of Romanian string bands, have all become surprisingly popular among New York musicians in the past decade or so. Many of those bands will appear on the multiple stages of Brooklyn’s Grand Prospect Hall, including the Zlatne Uste Brass Band, founders and hosts of the festival.
The Zlatne Uste Golden Festival 2017, a two-day celebration of Balkan music, food, drink, and clothing, is tonight and tomorrow at Brooklyn’s Grand Prospect Hall.
