Join us for a special edition of the Slivovica Social Club at Seven Dining Lounge with guests VENTANAS from Toronto.

Led by singer & flamenco dancer Tamar Ilana, the trans-Mediterranean ensemble Ventanas fuse passion and intimate dialogue, embracing the varied instrumental and melodic traditions of North Africa, the Balkans, Turkey and Spain to create fresh interpretations and original songs. Oud, baglama, darbuka, and percussive flamenco footwork intertwine with surprising harmony, joy and yearning, and this unusual musical mix garnered the group two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations in 2014 for their recent album “Allumbre”.

Sharing the evening with Ventanas will be the host Orkestar Slivovica, Vancouver’s premiere Balkan brass band, playing wedding and festive music from Serbia, Macedonia, and other distant and mysterious lands. The ensemble plays and sings a diverse repertoire, from insanely fast dance tunes to heartwrenching songs, often in crooked rhythms and exotic scales.
