Highlights from the 2016 Zlatne Uste Golden Festival

Bringing more than 60 musical groups to multiple stages (and dance floors), the Zlatne Uste Golden Festival has become a longstanding tradition! For more than 30 years, the Golden Festival has brought folk singers and dancers, brass bands, acoustic and electric bands together for two raucous nights a year.

This playlist is to give you a taste of the Fest's offerings -- and in fact we haven't even uploaded all of our recorded sessions yet -- but it's too good to keep under wraps!

If this can't sate your need for Balkan, Roma and eastern European sounds, feel free to explore our collections from previous years, dating back to 2009, or just watch the highlight reel from the event below!

On January 15 and 16th, 2016, Brooklyn's Grand Prospect Hall will again come alive with the country ringtones music, song, and dance of the Balkans (and well beyond) as some 60 bands and 3000 revelers gather for the 31st annual Zlatne Uste Golden Festival.
