After two successful editions the Balkan Sessions festival is growing a tiny bit bigger, with film'n'food, dj-sets and 3 very different live (big) bands from all around the globe.


18:30 - 20:00 / Les Triplettes De Belleville movie screening

11/12/2017

◔ Film'n'Food 18:00 - 20:00: Screening of Les Triplettes de Belleville ▷ Kelderzaal De Centrale

Before the concerts festival ticket holders can join the screening of animation movie classic Les Triplettes de Belleville by French director Sylvain Chomet. It tells the story of some maffiosi chasing a race biker in Paris on a marvellous gypsyswing score sung by three brave old women. Gypsyswing all started in Paris in the 1930's with Django Reinhardt, a legendary Romani jazz manouche guitarist playing with a bunch of Gitan gypsies. If you thought swing was American, it was at least heavily formed by Eastern gypsy music. Gypsyswing is balkan baby! Enjoy the movie!

20:00 - 21:00 / Bernard Orchestar live at Balkan Sessions #3

09/12/2017

◑ Bernard Orchestar 20:00 - 21:00 ▷ Turbinezaal De Centrale

The concert section starts with pure & shiny blinking brass. The 12-piece strong Brussels based Bernard Orchestar turns East-European compositions and arrangements into irresistible and extremely contagious retro-modern balkan party music with a funky twist.




21:00 - 22:30 / Oratnitza live at Balkan Sessions #3

08/12/2017

◕ Oratnitza 21:00 - 22:30 ▷ Kelderzaal De Centrale

The combination of orthodox traditional Bulgarian chant and fast spitting rap rhymes is mesmerizing. Two didgeridoos pretend to be a double bass, a Spanish cajón replaces the traditional percussion with an explosion of hiphop, trap and drum'n'bass rhythms. No wonder Oratnitza is considered the most popular innovative band from Bulgaria.

22:45 - 00:00 / Gypsy Hill live at Balkan Sessions #3

07/12/2017

◕ Gypsy Hill 22:30 - 00:00 ▷ Turbinezaal De Centrale

The most solid party beats will be brought by the headliner of tonight. Their contagious mix of balkan brass, Mediterranean surf-rock, ska- and swing rhythms makes the perfect connection to the party section. The core of Gypsy Hill is the legendary producers duo from London responsible for some world-famous classic balkan party grooves you'll probably already know by heart. Their very first show in Belgium with the full live band set-up will be a unique experience. The sound of this London based band is innovative and traditional in the meantime; thanks to an exceptional combination of guitars, wind instruments, tuba and scratch turntables they'll turn the concert room into one big dance floor.

00:00 - 03:00 / mnsr zér0 dj-set at Balkan Sessions #3

06/12/2017

● PARTY 00:00 - 3:00 ▷ Turbinezaal De Centrale

Mnsr Zéro's sets are surprising blends of the latest innovative cross-over partysounds from all corners of our planet. Think exciting balkan hiphop-trap, Arab dabke from Beirut's pulsing nightclubs, Belgrado's evolutions of crazy balkan and gypsystyle dancing, swingrhythms mixed up with Scandinavian rap, Eastern moombahton and electro-bollywood, klezmerwhirls, and maybe some variation from the south: AfroLatin grooves like reggaetón, electrocumbia or faster kuduro- and afrobeats. The list of names and styles is endless, we'd rather call it move-your-body music; an elixir through dancing. His mixes are a real relief for people addicted to dancing and searching for challenges beyond the simple beats of shallow radio hit music. Discover plenty of mixtapes on his mixcloud page!

She takes you along the roads flamenco and gypsy music has travelled; from Radjastan to Egypt and back from North-Africa to Spain. It will make you float and fly on the meditative chants from Khadjuraho, the sparkles from an Andalusian guitar, the ethno-fusion from Titi Robin and the solid flamenco urbano from Ojos de Brujo.

This workshop is accessible for everybody having some rhythm feeling, and above all possessing a lot of love for music.

Announced: movie screening at ● colorCalor ●

11/03/2017

This edition will have its film'n'food section: enjoying food while watching one of the greatest music movies ever made. Tony Gatlif's 'Vengo' honours gipsy music developed in the South of Spain. It tells the vendetta story between rivaling clans in Andalucia, on the edge of vengeance, betraying and breaking the circle of conflict through the only common passion: the love for music, flamenco.

In this movie the true charachter of flamenco music is shown in its purest sense: es un grito, un canto, un himno a la vida, al amor, al duelo, al precio de la sangre.


TIMING: 20:00 - 21:30, De Centrale, fr 31.03

This brand new mixtape by mnsr zér0 is an urgent pledge for music diversity. It is a quest for a balance between soul and dance, aiming for a wide range of rhythms and atmospheres. It swipes the dancefloor with hot mestizo, mixing Afribelge wind instruments with a wink to Brazilian lambada's, nesting flamencohiphop in an Afrohouse from Bollywood and turning Jamaican ska and Arab raps into charming yet sturdy Frenchness.

The tracks, often edited, have been manually mixed together in order to preserve the party atmosphere at a typical binair01 (after)party.

Mixtape Swing #1 by resident dj mnsr zér0

03/08/2016

This 1st compilation of selected swing music (i.e. gypsyswing, electroswing, swingjazz, french swing manouche,...) is a sequence of full tracks, often edited, but deliberately hardly mixed in order to preserve the complete song.

The compilation series are therefore more meant as a preview of the music collection used in live mixes. Although not representing the atmosphere of party dj-sets, cutting and mixing tracks more agressively and pushing people into wildness, they still are great stuff to enjoy dancing in your living room - or providing some thrill whilst working.

mnsr zér0's finest collection playlist on Deezer

15/07/2016

The music we collect is carefully selected on its dance pedigree and complexity of influences and variety of rhythms. Dancing is the very core of our events. It is not wobbling on endless repeating beats. It’s not waiting till the dj drops a radio hit with a recognizable tune to suddenly go wild. It isn’t shining in front of a photographer’s lens with your whitest teeth either.

This playlist features our resident dj's finest tracks from his dj-sets. Some mixtapes are shared on mixcloud.

Enjoy the music!

Binair01 closes the free Copacobana Festival near Ghent with a live band and a dj-set. French balkan-electro quintet Asa-I-Viata will close the main stage, and our resident dj mnsr zér0 will make you party until the very end.

The Rudies complete the ~ bougez bougez ~ line-up

10/04/2016

The Rudies are the producersduo behind the Urgent.fm program Radio Taxi. But above all, they are Ghentworld-famous for combining an amazing amount of music styles. “Tino Tozzi” and “Juan Jose” constantly explore dance music in its widest range; from disco to funk and electro – with a clear preference for more exotic influences such as cumbia, bhangra, afrobeat, samba, baile funk, balkan, bollywood, kuduro, and so on. 

For sure their sets are surprising, innovative and eclectic. They’re all about earopening dance tunes crossing musical borders.

Les Cerveaux Lents play at ~ bougez bougez ~

06/04/2016

The members from Les Cerveaux Lents share their common passion for klezmer and gipsy music since 2002, but until now deliberately kept the band in the intimate pleasure background of their other musical projects like Absynthe Minded and Va Fan Fahre. We all know what happened to those two, so Les Cerveaux Lents is back in the game.

And how! Their first full album “Heiβ und fürchterlich”, which was released a few months ago, is a fresh and joyful combination of klezmer with influences going from Arabian to African sounds with a hint of jazzy Django swing guitar. 

Don’t be mistaken though: the tunes are catchy, the rhythms infectious enough to have your legs badly shaken.

Dutch-Bosnian sevdahrockers Projekt Rakija play at ~ bougez bougez ~

04/04/2016

Bosnia is where the roots of Projekt Rakija lie. Frontman Igor Sekulović fled from his birth country to the Netherlands as a child during the 90’s war, and started a big band some 15 years later. Consisting of 10 musicians, a cartoonist and a graphic designer, Projekt Rakija finds a refreshing recipe for renewing the traditional Bosnian blues, sevdalinje, by crossing genres, bringing together artistic disciplines, and adding non-traditional sounds and instruments. The authentic balkan dance music is combined with very energetic rhythms, a rock attitude, bass drums and brass kicks.

Watch their final song closing the Sziget festival, where legendary balkan bands play balkan music in the middle of the balkans, and you’ll realize Dutch insanity added to the true spirit of a hardcore balkan feast is a guarantee for getting completely nuts at the end of the night. Right at the moment it’s time for the party, with resident dj’s from binair01 and Radio Taxi.

The binair01 ✦ C O L O RC A L O R ✦ series are dj-set editions which discover melting dance music from all over the world. This 3rd edition supports our friends from Sheeprock.

The 6th edition of the traditional binair01 New Year's party moves to a bigger venue. It is pure dancing pleasure in its easiest yet attractive form: some dj's, a cosy dancefloor, and above all: an exquisite selection of a wide variety of tunes and rhythms you won't hear anywhere else.


This edition is dedicated to balkan music. Tonight is a joyful celebration of its incredible versatile faces and its ability to fuse genres and people. Some of the best French and Belgian examples of this border crossing phenomenon will make you dance from second # one.
