Baksana! Live music and belly dance in Portland, Oregon.

Baksana is a fun, high-energy Belly Dance Busking group of performers in Portland who are inspired by Middle Eastern, Balkan, Turkish, Romani, and western music and dance. Co-directed by Paul Evans and Danielle Elizabeth; all the music is live and all of the material is original. The dance is a fusion of many cultures, researched and loved by the performers. Initialy conceived as a busking performance group… Baksana is loud, strong, and adaptable to many scenarios. You’ll find them at markets and fairs, weddings, theater shows, and parties of all sorts!
