The 5th anniversary edition of the annual Balkan Sessions is a broad festival covering several cultural domains, exploring the incredible versatile faces of Eastern music and its ability to fuse genres and people – whether it is balkan, Roma rap, gypsyswing, flamenco, Middle-Eastern hiphop or the Turkish and Persian heritages behind it.
