Join us for the 8th ZORBA party with a huge lineup of International acclaimed artists.
Zorba Productions have worked hard since 2012 to bring a unique mix of world and Gypsy music and dance to one big party. The vision and delivery of world travel through sound and dance has attracted thousands of people over a few years to experience, express, share and enjoy one space with so much diversity.
The Byron Shire have been a meeting place for thousands of years and is still a meeting place today. This brings together so many people into a big melting pot of creativity. Many of these people are artists, musicians and dancers that perform nation wide as well as Internationally for many years. The Zorba Productions bring those “International Locals” to play and share their gifts with the local community and surrounding areas.
