The Balkanics: Meet Bryndyn Weiner

No CommentsMarch 24, 2011 by John

Bryndyn Weiner may be one of the co-founders of the Balkanics, but he doesn’t come from the Balkan region. The son of a military father, Weiner grew up mostly in Silver Spring, Md. But through his father’s passion for Bulgarian music and dancing, Weiner found a deep appreciation for the art. He started out dancing at many of the Bulgarian folk social functions and eventually found himself playing the tupan and conventional drum kit with the music. With his wife, Tzvety Weiner, he formed the Balkanics in 2004. Hear his story. (3:52)
