A Five-piece Rock Band With Balkan Fire
“Their live shows are superb – one always gets a sense of hearing music played with spontaneity, verve and delight.”
Dessislava Stefanova, Music Director, The London Bulgarian Choir
Valkania are London-based band who celebrate the Balkans’ infectious uneven rhythms, mixing them up with jazz and blues – plus ‘balkanized’ cover versions from the Rolling Stones to Roxy Music.
Juggling five languages and a standard rock formation – electric guitars, piano, bass, drums – we also use folk instruments such is Greek bouzouki, baglamas, accordion and darabuka. We guarantee to lift the spirits with our sparkly mix of originals and covers.
