Bossaphonik is firmly established as Oxford's hub for live jazz-dance and world-dance.

Established in October 2004 by Dan Ofer and Gil Karpas, it has blossomed into a celebratory night and has played host to 100 great bands.

It has become something of a movement and community of people passionate about quality of live music, and of course, dancing the night away.

So come on down to The Cellar on any first Friday of the month and The Bullingdon on alternate months. Chill with your friends for the first hour while the DJs play nourishing music for the mind and soul, experience the energy of a wicked live band, then dance your socks off to the most tasteful global beats till the early hours!


Friday 3rd August
@ East Oxford Community Centre (The Lounge)
7pm-12am. Band on at 8pm

This may actually be the last Bossaphonik event in Oxford as me Dan Ofer of Bossaponik am moving back up North to my original home town.

It's nice to end it with something local for a chilled summer session, we have Faith i Branko in their 4 piece of what I consider the finest East European Balkan Band on the Island of the UK!  

Faith is a supreme local Oxford accordion (and more) talent, having her fantastic unique energetic, and percussive approach to the instrument. Husband Branko is one of the highest rated Serbian Roma violinists around. With also bass and guitar in their superb band, this will be fun!

At slightly reduced volume than usual before and after is Bossaponik DJ Dan Ofer with the sweetest Jazz Dance and the most colourful Global Grooves...

Afrobeat * Latin rhythms * Balkan Beats * Global Grooves * Soul Jazz * Future Soul * Nu Jazz * and Other Excursions...
