The Zorba Gypsy Party plans to be the biggest Gypsy party the Byron shire has ever seen.

From soul-stirring Gypsy songs and heart-melting melodies to sublime grooves and quirky beats to shake your hips, this is a night not to miss.

The party will feature well-loved local Gypsy sensation Shakshuka, who play music from the heart and around the world, both heartachingly beautiful and contagiously danceable. Up-tempo Eastern European Gypsy melodies, Middle Eastern, Latin and original songs are played on guitar or oud, fiddle, great vocal harmonies and a live bellydancer in a fusion of contemporary and traditional sounds.

Shakshuka are a global journey of sound, emotion and dance, and together they take the audience on an eclectic Gypsy journey around the world.

The night will also feature  legendary DJ Chris Dekker, world-class Nomadic Band (Amir Paiss, Avishai Barnatan and more), a Bedouin song circle with Shai Shriki, the songs of Jamie Patugalan, the roving performance with Danidoo Butterfly and our greatest host MC Nyck Jeanes.

Music, dance, and delicious food to excite your passions and satisfy your soul!

Dress up and come down to celebrate.

Tonight at the Durrumbul Hall.

Doors open at 6pm.

Food by Open Table.

$20 – Kids by donation. All ages welcome.
