Henry Goldberg is a true
master of the Balkan
tapan.  When the
Bulgarian  group Kabile
came on tour to Boston,
they were traveling
without a tapan player.  
Henry stepped in and
played with them,
seamlessly and
completely in style.
David Golber has been playing Balkan-style clarinet
for decades.  He speaks Macedonian, and has
studied in the Republic of Macedonia with Risto
Krapovski, Bajsa Arifovska, and others.
Kasia Sokalla studied voice in her native
Poland, and graduated with honors from
the Berklee School of Music.
Gawain Thomas comes
from a musical family,
and began playing
accordion at an early
age. He has studied for
years with Bulgarian
maestro Ivan Milev, and
is well-known in Boston's
Balkan music scene.
plays music of the Balkans.  Not the loud and
fast brass
band.   Not the massive thirty-voice
choir.   We bring you other great music from
the Balkans, from the complex dance rhythms
of Macedonia to the heart-wrenching Sevdah
song tradition of Bosnia.

Gogofski plays for a dance evening the way
they do in the old country: the musicians on the
floor playing right in front of you, to you, for
you.  A Gogofski club evening gives you a feast
of comic songs and intimate ballads, traditional
and modern, and brings you to understanding,
to sharing, and to feeling.  And at an outdoor
festival, Gogofski brings a new sound and a
new excitement that brings the audience out of
their seats to dance in front of the stage.
