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 4th May @ The Cellar

The Turbans Bossaphonik

A free spirited collective who have focused on honing a sound that can only truly be their own, combining East European traditions and Middle Eastern grooves. A virtuoso charismatic bunch of individuals hailing from Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, Israel, Spain, Iran and the UK who are currently on a 3 month long-awaited debut album release tour. Through guitars, violin, oud, clarinet, bass and an assortment of Middle Eastern percussion they create a colourful dancefloor oriented sound opening up a vibrant new world fusion. 

Bossaphonik DJ Dan Ofer spins tunes afterwards for a world jazz-dance club session with the sounds of Afrobeat * Latin Rhythms * Global Beats * Balkan Bangers * Nu Jazz bizniz and Soulful vibes...
