Black Sea Beat Society brings Balkan, Turkish, and Middle Eastern music to Western North Carolina and beyond. 

 This high energy band has a wide ranging repertoire, moving from Balkan Brass jams, to Turkish Psychedelic, to Middle Eastern classics, to Klezmer tunes. Featuring accordion, horns, guitar, and drums, Black Sea Beat Society will bring the party, every time. 

We avoid using the G word (Gypsy) when describing our music, because it has been used as an ethnic slur and many many Romani folks have asked non-Romani people to not use the word, especially when describing people who are not of that ethnicity. Because none of us are ethnically Romani or Sinti, we do not have the authority to reclaim the word with pride, those certainly people from these ethnic backgrounds can choose to call themselves whatever they identify with. Please don’t use this word when describing our sound.
