Da! Mozhem plays and sings high-energy pan-Balkan music for the joy of dancing. D!M is a group of friends who have been playing together for well over a decade. The group has veterans from many excellent folklore bands such as the People’s International Silver String Macedonian Band, Born to Drone, Westwind, Sviraci, and the Slavonian Traveling Band. The band plays with emphasis on Bulgarian, Macedonian, and ex-Yugoslav traditions. Several members frequently travel to the Balkans to learn more about the folkloric music of the region. The group plays on traditional instruments unique to the region as well as modern instruments.
Bill Cope is a multi-instrumentalist who performs on over 60 instruments in many diverse concert settings. He began playing Balkan music in the mid-1970s after falling in love with the music while being in a dance group based in San Jose. Bill began his career giving lessons on tambura at the Mendocino Balkan Music and Dance Workshops in 1982, and to date he has taught at many workshops around the country. Bill has been the music director of San Francisco-based Westwind International Folk Ensemble, Aman International Dance Ensemble, and Mendocino Folklore Camp, and is currently the director of the San Francisco Kolo Festival. Instruments: accordion, laouto, gajda.
