Palinka takes stage at French center
French quintet Palinka plays music inspired by Balkan melodies, French gypsy swing and modern jazz.
Created in 2003, the quintet has given more than 550 shows in pubs, concert halls and festivals in France and other countries from Spain to Sri Lanka. In August 2004, Palinka went on a tour in Eastern European countries, where they discovered “Palinka,” a local plumb liquor, which gave the band its name, along with a liveliness and enthusiasm for musical encounters. Each Palinka concert is an event filled with humor, generosity and surprises.
