Mehana is a 5-piece ensemble with a unique repertoire influenced by traditional Balkan and gypsy music styles. Their rich and colourful melodies have curious rhythms, gently blending with local musical culture. This is a special evening showcasing Sevdah music, a Balkan experience you have not encountered before and you don't want to miss.

In a musical sense, Sevdah is characterised by a slow or moderate tempo and intense, emotional melodies. Sevdah songs are very elaborate, emotionally charged and are traditionally sung with passion and fervour.

The combination of Oriental, European and Sephardic elements make this type of music stand out among other types of folk music from the Balkans.

You can get your drinks downstairs at the bar and enjoy them upstairs without the usual noise of a bar.
