About

BALKApHAN is the base of several activities and projects around the Bulgarian Band
>>> BALKAN kHANs <<<
the band can be described quick n dirty in five words: BEATBOX Master MEETS BALKAN traditions

The BALKAN kHANs had their first gigs as one of the live experiments at the BALKAN SCIENTISTS parties in Sofia a unique meeting point in the town where musicians with strong personalities coming from very different backgrounds, ethnicities and generations join their forces. That is how it became possible for the 65 years old gypsy violin virtuoso Venzi Takev to share one stage with the 22 years Bulgaria’s beat box phenomena Skiller (he made the 2nd time in series the world champion at Berlin Beatbox Battle in 2012!!!), the multi instrumentalist and global fusion composer Nikolai Ivanov to meet the gypsy gaida (bagpipe) and tupan master Kolio Ivano who rearly leaves his native little town of Straldja, and all this madness under the deep tuba bass of Mitko Uzunov taken right from the rehearsals of Wagner’s “Rhine Gold” in the National Opera house.

this is a vital, let’s call it “neo-traditional” music ready to detonate in the ears of the world. A real Balkan Beat Box team coming from the heart of the Balkans. Don’t miss it!
