If you find yourself stopped on the street by a hauntingly beautiful beat of drums and slow, mournful trumpet cry weaving sounds from faraway lands, you’ve stumbled across Niko Ne Zna, New Zealand’s very own roaming Balkan Gypsy band.
Their music is high energy with dark undertones and exotic tunes, fantastic grooves and exciting solos. The band has thrilled audiences all over the country with their mix of brass, percussion, Balkan bass drum (tapan) and snare drum and songs sung in Serbian, Romani, Macedonian and Greek.
Niko Ne Zna will make your ears rise to attention and your feet move in a frenzy. Follow Niko Ne Zna on Instagram.
