2010.... The Year of Balkan Music!

Turku & Tallinn may be the Culture Capitals 2011 and Helsinki The Design Capital 2012 but WE DECLARE YEAR 2010 TO BE THE YEAR OF BALKAN MUSIC HERE IN HELSINKI.
OUR DUBROVNIK PROGRAM FOR THE WINTER IS HERE AND IT WILL, IF POSSIBLE, JUST GET BETTER FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR... Towards the summer there will be more legendary guests coming from f.ex. Hungary & Germany, and the Finnish legends Hortto Kaalo prepare for their official 40 year anniversary tour & book release....

Sat. 30.01. Opa Novy God (New Year Band) from St.Petersburg visited Hellsinky last fall in Juttutupa to play the feet off from the bunch of audience that was lucky to be there. This time they're back for a club dancefloor in Dubrovnik and are up for a hilarious party to end the "tipaton tammikuu" -winter period of white noses. Check their myspace:

Sat. 20.02. Jasmine & Tinalos ladies will present some true gypsy beauty in heart & soul. They will be more than two ladies with also new live songs & surprise program. Do not miss this one!!!

Sat. 13.03. The Emperor of Planet Paprika will be back in Helsinki. Shantel 5 hr solo set.
The lucky ones that got the sold-out&fought-for-tickets for the last time here know what to expect.
(The ladies who left early last time because they accidentally got drinks poured on them, please contact us for compensation....)

Tickets for next year will be available from starting in January 2010, get yours in time, limited 200 people venue capacity. Yes, we are considering bigger venues but Dubrovnik is such a nice place! See You there!
