MAY 6th, 2004 (New York, NY) ≠ Romashka, The Village
Klezmer Quintet, and the Gold Sparkle Brass Band are
joining forces at the Baggot Inn on Thursday, May 6th. The
show will feature the lively music of Romanian & Russian
Gypsy caravans, the Eastern European Jewish diaspora, and
New Orleans second line, which grew out of the funeral
procession traditions of African slaves.

The Romashka Eastern European Collective unites several
Eastern European music projects sharing a common mission:
to fill NYCís growing appetite for live Eastern European
folk music.

European Jews back to cafes, clubs, and celebrations all
around NYC boroughs and beyond. The groupís weekly shows
at Café and new fans, and the bandís members are welcome
and frequent entertainers at weddings, bar mitzvahs, and

rhythm-throttling chop-splitting Brooklyn-dwelling world
music afficionados, who have gigged in various Klezmer,
Balkan, jazz, funk,and ska ensembles around the city.
