September 11th – 13th
Maintaining the spirit of trans-global exchange and recognition of gypsy culture, the 2009 New York Gypsy Tabor Festival has returned to engage the tri-state area in a passionate celebration of music, arts, and ideas. This event is produced by Mehanata Bulgarian Bar in conjunction with local performers, including I Guilliare Di Plazza and Open Concept Network. Slated to take place September 11th – 13th at the Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn , it summons all who possess a bit of gypsy in their hearts. In years past the festival has sought to illuminate the music and arts of a wide regional scope, with artists showcasing the sounds of Bulgaria , Turkey , Russia , and the Balkans. As its people represent an unending variety of origins and ethnicities, New York City ’s First airport provides the ideal stage for the event: a place where all walks of life cross paths and the essence of gypsy culture hovers just above the urban sprawl. Beach-side and brilliant green, the field will host campsites, bonfires and bbq’s, DJ dance parties, food and alcohol vendors and live music. From fire breathing to belly dancing, the possibility of a dull moment is highly unlikely. A diverse palette of performers are scheduled to appear over the course of the weekend, spanning from traditional dance to contemporary music. Each come with a piece of history and a part of their world to share.
Ameranouche will do a set on the main stage Sunday at 4:30 PM.
Ameranouche will be joined by Ted Gottesegan on rhythm guitar.
We hope to see you there.
