Balkan Gypsy Band


Thanks! We will get back to you shortly

Western Cape

The Balkan band's song is incredibly infectious and creates an instant party! Music from Serbia, Turkey, Lithuania, Russia, and Ukraine is included in the films Black Cat White Cat, Buba Mara, and Time of the Gipsies.

Playing with Fire was a founding band of Cape Town's first Balkanology parties, performing in four of them with thirteen musicians on stage! For nearly two years, the band performed as a quartet on the last Saturday morning of every month at the Biscuit Mill fresh food market in Salt River.

The band can currently expand to six members, with Charles Summerfield on vocals in the cheeky Barat style.


"I thought the music was perfect and added a nice vibe to the beginning of the party."

"Thank you from both Nick and me for making our wedding so memorable." We have received numerous praises on your music. You definitely created the 'feeling' we desired for our wedding by making the walk-down and beverages so much fun. Thank you very much."

- Daniella Mark, M.D.
