BALFOLK - What's that?
Balfolk is a French-born movement that brings a contemporary groove to traditional folk dances and is now conquering dance floors across Europe. Sometimes exuberant and fast, sometimes intimate and dreamy, there is something for everyone at Balfolk and once you start, you rarely ever stop.
Just drop by spontaneously! For more balfolk events in Basel and Switzerland, check out
