Festival Romani

Sellwood Riverfront Park

[GYPSY PARTY] Gypsy music and dance evolved as its creators wended from India through Eastern and Western Europe and beyond. This new festival, featuring both local and visiting Roma-influenced musicians and dancers, celebrates many of their ancient and modern incarnations along with food, film, art, workshops, lectures, jams, a children’s area that includes storytelling and more. The morning music begins with Reinhardt-Grappelli-inspired Manouche gypsy jazz by Djangophiles, followed by traditional Andalusian flamenco music and dance from El Cuadro Gallo, Turkish Roman gypsy songs by Ritim Egzotik, improvisational dance of the original Indian Kalbelia gypsies performed by Colleena Shakti, brassy Balkan dance band Kef with University of Oregon Balkan expert and singer Carol Silverman, San Francisco Roma band Galbeno, Russian Romani band and dancers Via Romen. Portland’s Chervona brass band headlines the dance-crazed after party at Bossanova Ballroom (722 E Burnside St., 206-7630. 8:30 pm. $20. 21+.).
