ExME brings a wealth of local talent to perform on the BMS Playhouse stage to highlight the ethnic diversity that makes our spectacular city shine. As part of our mission encouraging Healing and Unity, the event will send a strong message of solidarity with the many communities from the Middle East that contribute to Brooklyn’s diverse tapestry of faiths and cultures, with music drawn from the Muslim, Jewish, and Christian traditions. Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo will open the night with remarks in support of the contributions of those from the Middle East and North Africa who have been instrumental in building a richer and stronger Brooklyn.

The Disorientalists, London, UK, 4 May 2017

The Disorientalists

Thursday 4th May 2017 | From 8pm
Rich Mix,
35-47 Bethnal Green Road,
London, E1 6LA UK

Tickets £10 advance available here, £12 Door

Part klezmer cabaret, part oriental ragtime, part theatrical storytelling, Berlin-based The Disorientalists are presented by Dash Arts and Nest Collective.

Disorientalists are Yuriy Gurzhy (RotFront, Russendisko, Born in UA), Daniel Kahn (Daniel Kahn and Te Painted Bird, Brothers Nazarof, Semer Ensemble) and Marina Frenk (Marina & Kapelsky, Real Baba Dunyah). The three Berliners-bychoice joined forces to write and perform a piece of musical theatre based on the life of Essad Bey a.k.a. Kurban Said a.k.a. Lev Nussimbaum, author of the great Romeo and Juliet-esque novel 'Ali and Nino', set in Baku during the upheaval of the Russian revolution. A little bit folkloristic, a little bit klezmer, incorporating elements of swing and oriental romance, Gurzhy and three other band members perform songs inspired by Essad Bey on baglama, accordion and piano.
