Gypsy Folk Ensemble at the 18th Annual Assyrian Food Festival

In September 2015, the Gypsy Folk Ensemble was invited to perform for the Assyrian community of the San Joaquin Valley in California. Gypsy presented suites of German, Greek, Italian and Romanian dances plus a few solo performances at the 18th Annual Assyrian Food Festival in the town of Ceres, just south of Modesto, California. The festival, which highlights Assyrian culture and cuisine, took place on September 12th and 13th, 2015 and was broadcast on the Assyrian Broadcasting Radio Station KBES-FM and also on Assyria Vision TV on station KBSV.
