Paprika: The Balkan & East European Band

16th July, 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Paprika is the UK’s leading Balkan band featuring Zivorad Nikolic (She’Koyokh) on accordion, Vladimir Strkalj on guitar, Marko Tesic on violin and Rastko Rasic on percussion. This electrifying group fuses together Eastern European, Balkan, Gypsy and Classical music in a whirlwind performance of frenzied virtuosity. Fiery melodies and foot-tapping rhythms are interspersed with lilting laments in high-energy sets. Specialising in bringing rare or lost traditional Balkan music back to life, both the curious listener and the well-versed aficionado are sure to enjoy a host of surprises and fast-paced entertainment. Following the release of their album, Wild, Wild East, in 2019 Paprika have performed all over the world, from New Zealand to Japan, including Womad and Glastonbury festivals and prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House. Now this summer the band head to Dorset as a quartet to perform with Artsreach, the county’s rural arts charity.
