Caravan World Rhythms & Beats Without Borders are proud to present for the first time in Vancouver, internationally acclaimed and celebrated Balkan Beat master, DJ SHANTEL. Shantel has taken concerts halls, clubs and festivals in Europe by storm since the early 2000s with his unique take on traditional Balkan music and club nights.
Famed for his Bucovina Club in Frankfurt, Germany, which he founded following a trip in search of his family roots in Bucovina - a region now split between Ukraine and Moldavia – Shantel has spearheaded the revival of Gypsy Music and Balkan Beats all around the world. Through the Bucovina Club Orkestar live performances in Europe and the Bucovina Club album releases worldwide, this producer/musician/DJ has truly created his own genre. A BBC World Music award recipient, he has performed from Glastonbury to Roskilde and from East to West in Europe, with residencies in Istanbul, Rome, Vienna and Zürich, as well as several German cities. His new brand of pop music covers the sounds of Central Europe, the Balkans, Greece, Turkey and beyond.
Also performing are Vancouver's Turkish DJ's Burinata Duo, and Beats Without Borders Lady Ra (a long-awaited return appearance!), plus the talented belly-dancer Rahel! A night that won't be forgotten soon!
