Event description


Janam (“My Soul”) presents dark love songs from Bulgaria, Greece, West Virginia, and beyond for a different spin post-Valentine’s Day.


Dan Auvil – percussion, vocals
Tom Farris – laouto, guitar, percussion
Juliana Graffagna – vocals, accordion
Gari Hegedus – oud, saz, mandocello, mandolin
Shira Kammen – violin, harp, vocals


Combining funky Balkan rhythms, gritty Appalachian ballads, arresting vocal harmonies, and enchanting acoustic textures, Janam creates a distinct musical experience. Janam unites some of the Bay Area’s most playful and imaginative devotees of southern Balkan and American roots music who weave together folk tunes and their own colorful compositions, taking their audiences on a labyrinthine musical ride.
