Planet Paprika Tour

Having conquered the world with hits Bucovina and Disko Partizani (3.5 million views on Youtube), Shantel returns to KOKO with the full Bucovina Club Orkestar for a night of Balkan-Gypsy-Disco-Excess. His album Planet Paprika is topping charts across Europe. "Planet Paprika is an all-inclusive place of the heart and mind, where East meets West, where there are no borders, no need for visas and the only people who might have trouble gaining entry are the style police and po-faced traditionalists."  (Perceptive Travel)  An uplifting party with great music and loads of fun!
