Banda Entopica in Munich
Banda Entopica(GR) live in München is a traditional music street band based in Thessaloniki, fusing clarinet, saxophone, accordion and davul in a synthesis of traditional and modern Balkan music. The word “Entopica” is a reference to the dialect of the Slavic-speaking populations of Macedonia, commonly called “Ntopica” (in greek, it means the local language). Influenced by a wide array of sounds from Macedonia, Thrace, Epirus and the entire Balkan Peninsula, their music is a dance-inducing, ecstatic frenzy of traditional songs and original compositions. The band started out in the streets of Thessaloniki and pretty soon they were playing packed local music venues and well-known Greek music festivals.
A Dionysian feast of traditional music: the ultimate outlet of bottled-up emotion, for a crowd that desperately needs it.
