Bohemian Fest


Saturday, October 1, 2016 - 9:00pm


Mehanata 113 Ludlow, Lower East Side New York City

The show starts at 8, we come on at 9.

Since the late 1990s, Mehanata, (Bulgarian for “tavern”) has been acknowledged as Ground Zero for intercultural dance parties in Manhattan, attracting people from dozens of nationalities living in and visiting New York City, who come ready to partake in the most unique continuous celebration on the East Coast…

The free spirited celebratory culture and border-eliminating energy generated by its patrons has made for amazing nights of music, dance, and all festive chaos, centered around and inspired by global Gypsy/Roma, Balkan, and world music.

Mehanata helped produce the first-ever NY Gypsy Festival in 2005, and went on to cultivate a variety of festivals and celebrations throughout the years, including Roma film festivals and hyper-festive cultural events.
