* Ederlezi (Roma) or Djurdjevdan ("St George's Day" in Serbian/Macedonian) is the traditional "beginning of spring" celebration that so many cultures embody in one way or another.
Balkan style party with Sljivovica, Zirkonium, Bolting Brassicas, Mezamazing, Gradina Serbian dancers and Luciterra tribal dancers, was a chance for Vancouverites to experience some unusual and amazing music, dance, drinks and food. Strong vibes and atmosphere, encouraged performers and others to celebrate untill very late hours. Learning to dance some ethnic dances were strongly encouraged and lessons were free ...
At the end ,everyone were at the dance floor; musicians, dancers and warmly welcomed public..
Impressive bar with original liquor from the Balkan, and great homemade food, got everyone to feel like home.
I was amused by very inventive menu.
Sljivovica is also very strong Serbian plum brandy, here mixed with pop. Names of the drink mixes say how it affects the body and mind!
Pita, Sljivovica but no Sarma
You can find recipes for pita and sarma with step by step photos how to make them, on my page Cooking 101.
Multiple choice of Sljivovicas!
It started euphoric!
Slivovica gets everyone from their chairs!
Serbian folk dancers gave short "kolo" classes.
It continued with Seattle's bend Zirkonium
Everyone on their feet until early morning!
