The 4th edition of the annual Balkan Sessions is a broad festival covering several cultural domains, exploring the incredible versatile faces of Eastern music and its ability to fuse genres and people – whether it is balkan, Roma rap, gypsyswing, Middle-Eastern hiphop or the Turkish and Persian heritages behind it. Together with VOEM, binair01 transforms the complete venue of De Centrale into a festival filled with expo, dance, food, workshops, docu, lectures and most of all: a huge amount of music with no less than 5 concerts and a dj-set party.
