Rhyta Musik

Michigan's Premier Balkan Brass Band


Rhyta Musik, Michigan’s premier Balkan Brass Band, fuses together cultural traditions with modern sensibilities to present original compositions and Eastern European folk melodies. The band educates and uplifts communities with an understanding of cultural diversity and the importance of spending joyful time together. The ensemble consists of bass drum (tapan), snare, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, vocals, and a lead line dancer. Rhyta Musik performs often throughout Michigan and spreads its love of culture and diversity at venues including Cliff Bell’s, the Blind Pig, and the Ark, as well as festivals and conferences such as Arts Beats and Eats, Crash Festival, Homegrown Festival, Water Hill Festival, and the International Conference on Diversity in the Arts, SphinxCon.
