      Zabava! Izvorno plays Macedonian dance music. Zabava! means Party! Izvorno
      means a traditional band from Macedonia. They play traditional folk music on
      regional instruments.

      Late Cift performs Balkan music from that area's Turkish culture, along with
      Greek, Armenian and Albanian music. Started in March of 1999, at first it
      was a nameless trio of Tom, Mary, and Peggy plus various drummers playing a
      repertoire from the Turkish community of Bulgaria and Anatolian Turkish
      music; both Tom and Peggy were members of the now-defunct Anadolum folk
      chorus. The band name comes from the scheduling at Kolo Festival, when the
      group always seemed to get the last Kafana slot. Despite the reference to
      ciftetelli, at first they mostly knew karsilamas, but that name was already
      taken. In 2001 the trio was joined by Bill Lanphier and Jerry Summers. In
      addition to performing at Balkan Camp and Kolo, Late Cift has played a
      number of annual festivals for the Turkish-American Association in San Mateo
      and Monterey.
