George N. Koldzic, Artistic Director
Established in 1999, the Boston-based group of folk enthusiasts has quickly become known for its original choreographies,
elaborate costumes, polished style, and attention to detail. Founded and directed by George N. Koldzic,
formerly a soloist with the Krsmanovich National folk Dance Ensemble in
Belgrade, Grachantisa is proudly celebrating their 20th anniversary this year.
Zlatne Uste (Golden Lips) is an internationally known group of American-born musicians
playing traditional music of the Balkans, primarily representing
Serbian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Romany (Gypsy) traditions.
Four-time invited guest at the Dragachevo Brass Festival in Gucha, Serbia,
the 12-piece band is among the foremost presenters of traditional Balkan dance music in the United States.
