Drómeno is a traditional ensemble presenting authentic regional music from the Greek mainland and beyond, overlapping into the surrounding regions and finding the musical legacy that connects the traditions of the Balkans. Featuring wide-ranging instrumentation, the group is able to span the sounds of Greece, from Western Macedonia and Ipiros, through Thessaly and Thrace.

For over 30 years, members of Dromeno have been performing and teaching Greek and Balkan folk music throughout Greece, the U.S., and Canada. Christos Govetas is the 1999 recipient of the prestigious Northwest Folklife Fellowship Award honoring his cultural contribution to the Greek-American and folk dance communities. He is also a contributing member of Bill Frisell’s Grammy-nominated album, The Intercontinentals. Both Christos and Ruth Hunter are also recipients of the Ethnic Heritage Council’s Gordon Ekvall Tracie Award of 2017.
