Boban Markovic Orkestar, Philadelphia, PA, Jul 24, 2008

Festive gypsy brass band Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar ignites an "unbeatable Balkan dance party" (Songlines) in the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 7:30pm.

Hailed as the greatest of Balkan trumpeters, Boban Markovic, the legendary native of Serbia's gypsy brass heartland, has led his 13-piece Orkestar to international acclaim, enhancing the traditional repertoire with elements of jazz, Latin and pop, among others. Boban and his son Marko lead the Orkestar into new directions with their trail-blazing musical mix, which the New York Times calls a ""a stunning blast of exuberance and virtuosity."

"With nods to klezmer, jazz, Latin and deep-fried funk injected into the mix, the Boban Markovic Orkestar knows where their music's been but they're hell-bent on sling-shotting it straight into the future." —Global Rhythm

For years, they have played music from the five corners of Europe and beyond. Their performances are rare and very good.

Panacea plays a delightful East European and Roma-Balkan dance mix, with group vocals. The all-star ensemble takes on impossibly challenging Eastern European rhythms, the kind that drive dancers to ecstasy. Acclaimed accordionist Nada Lewis is joined by hammered dulcimer player Robin Petrie (from such bands as Carnahan and Petrie, and Party of Seven), Shira Kammen (founder of Ensemble Alcatraz and music director of the Revels) on violin, top middle east percussionist Mark Bell (Helm), and vocalist Bon Singer (a founder of Kitka).

A Fundraiser for CTMD (Center for Traditional Music and Dance)

Merita Halili thrills audiences with her masterful rendition of Albanian folk music. Known in her homeland as the "Queen of Albanian folk songs" and highly esteemed for her stunning voice, range and vocal technique, the award-winning vocalist is accompanied by her husband, Raif Hyseni, whose innovations and compositions for accordion have garnered praise for his "speed demon accordion." With an ensemble that also includes clarinet, guitar, keyboard and percussion, Merita Halili and Raif Hyseni will astound you with their vocal and instrumental artistry.

The Michael Winograd Trio, with Patrick Farrell, Benjy Fox Rosen and Michael Winograd, features three major voices in the international contemporary Klezmer community. Performing new music and reimagined traditional and folk music, this ensemble aims to present a fresh way of listening to and enjoying the rich genre of Yiddish music. Drawing on a variety of influences, Winograd's new trio provides a full and genuine experience of Klezmer and Yiddish song. Dr. Joel Rubin, clarinetist, said, "Perhaps the leading voice of the younger generation of performers and composers within klezmer."

NOTE: There will be a participatory workshop the following afternoon, on Sunday, November 20th. More details will be posted when available.

The JEWISH WOMEN of REBETIKA

Within the provocative world of the early twentieth century urban Greek Café Amans, where flamboyant characters sang about desperate love, life and death, and the seedy side of life, there were a surprising number of celebrated Greek Jewish female vocalists. Included among them were Roza Eskenazi, one of the most renowned Greek singers of all time, and Stella Haskil, who sang together with legendary performers such as Vasilis Tsitsanis. On this side of the Atlantic, Jewish women, notably Amalia Baka and Victoria Hazan, found center stage in the immigrant Greek nightclubs and community celebrations of major urban centers, as well as within the American ethnic recording industry.

All four women were held in high esteem for their extraordinary singing of a beautiful and complex repertoire, both during their lifetimes and again in recent years. Their music, making use of Eastern scales and asymmetrical rhythms, lush with intricate embellishment, and profound in its emotional content and depth, found its way into the hears of several generations of devoted listeners.

Although widely embraced for their musical contributions to urban Greek cafe music and Rebetika, their histories as Jewish women are not widely known. Using live performance and excepts from personal and family interviews, acclaimed vocalist Carol Freeman, together with virtuoso instrumentalists Haig Manoukian (oud) and Beth Bahia Cohen (violin), pay tribute to these Greek Jewish singers with a fascinating look into the songs and lives of these extraordinary women.

7:30-9:30pm
$10

We are returning to one of our favorite venues, Johnny D's Uptown (Davis Sq., Somerville) for a show that will surely be remembered. We always love to play at this classic Somerville spot and are continuing the tradition of providing stellar and entertaining opening bands for the show. Last Spring we brought the Underscore Orkestra gypsy band from Oregon, this fall we had the Elephant Wrecking Ball, and this time around we are getting the Trubaci Balkan Brass Band! They will start the show off with a blast of brass that will surely get the party started right! They mix traditional eastern european flavors with intense improvisation and tight rhythms and harmonies. Trumpets, saxophones, trombones, tubas and drums will be blowing the roof off. Following Trubaci, Klezwoods will be rocking the house with our usual Klezmer/Eastern European blend of hard grooves, improvisation and melodies.

This is a particularly special show for us, as we will be hitting the studio the very next day to record our next full length album! We will be travelling up to Syracuse, N.Y. for a weekend of recording at More Sound Studios. We are very excited to get rolling on this one, as it will feature a lot of new and original material as well as some classic repertoire that will make for an interesting and fun album to listen to.

So come out and see us off with a night of great music, food, drinks and company! We hope to see you out this Thursday night!

7/9, rue Francis de Pressenssé,

Le week end continue avec deux autres groupes klezmer :

Tsimtsoum, du nom issu des traditions mystiques de la Kabbale, qui puise dans le répertoire klezmer et balkanique , en mèlant influences issues du classique , du jazz du folk , du blues ou de musiques ethniques. Une invitation au voyage et à l’imaginaire.

Mashké : quatre musiciens aux origines et univers différents, animés par l’envie d’injecter dans le répertoire traditionnel des musiques juives d’Europe centrale, leur propre réalité et d’autres sonorités. C’est la volonté de mêler les mots et les langues, d’allier cultures et territoires hétérogènes, de revisiter et réinterpréter ces magnifiques mélodies. Mais c’est avant tout une invitation au partage, à la danse et au chant tout autant qu’au rêve, à l’émotion et à la réflexion.

Bon FESTIVAL KLEZMER KAOS à L'ENTREPOT !

Enchanting, virtuosic, ornate – Ismail Fencioglu is a true master of Turkish music. He has mesmerized Canadian, European and Turkish audiences with his fleet-fingered oud playing, soaring tenor vocals and encyclopedic knowledge of the classical Turkish music repertoire. A graduate of the State Conservatory of Istanbul Technical University, he has performed throughout Turkey both live and on television with other masters of the genre, including Alaeddin Yavasca, Bekir Sidki Sezgin, Erkan Ogur and Tulin Yakarcelik. Residing now in Montreal, Canada, Ismail has partnered with high-energy, blues-rock inspired klezmer group Shtreiml to perform a set of "Turkish Roots & Jewish Blues." Through compelling original compositions and new arrangements of traditional folk melodies, the ensemble explores the ancient connections between Jewish and Turkish music. Joined by harmonica innovator Jason Rosenblatt (harmonica, keys), Rachel Lemisch (trombone), Thierry Arsenault (drums) and Joel Kerr (bass) the group's set has been labeled "explosive" (Halifax Chronicle Herald) and "exhilarating" (Rootsworld).

"Smyrneïka and Rebetika Vocal Workshop", Brooklyn, NY, 15 Sep 2013

Smyrneïka and Rebetika Vocal Workshop
Asia Minor Urban Greek Music of the 20s, 30s, and 40s
"The Blues of Greece"

Sunday, Sep 15, 2013, 2-4pm
Jalopy Theatre and School of Music
315 Columbia Street
Brooklyn, New York

This workshop will teach students to sing the magnificent vocal repertoire of early 20th Century Asia Minor Greek artists with authenticity and ease. By learning how to carefully listen to excellent recordings and how to then access one's memory of these songs, and by learning simple tricks to make singing them effortless, students will easily learn to sing an involved repertoire with comfort, clarity, and control. Students will begin to master the art of singing intricate ornamentation, complex rhythms, and microtonal scales, in a process that is fluid and fun. Students will also learn tricks for seamlessly switching between vocal placements without detection, and for producing optimal tone. We will also learn how to phrase songs so as to provide for maximum depth of expression, artistry, and musicality.

The songs, which follow the complex system of microtonal scales known as makam in Turkish or dhromi (roads) in Greek, have simply gorgeous melodies, and are lush with embellishment. The 1920s -1930s texts leave no stone unturned, and deal with scorching love, unbearable pain, cocaine, hashish, and heroine, lesbianism, monkey serum fountain of youth injections, harem girls, Hawaiian guitar music, and anything else one may fancy.
Though the repertoire is challenging and instruction is detailed and specific, the workshop will be taught in a supportive, comfortable and relaxed setting, and is always fun. The workshop is open to everyone and no prior experience with the reperotire or language is necessary.

Admission: $30

Wed, Mar 26, 8:00pm
Arsenal Center for the Arts
321 Arsenal St.
Watertown, MA

The Sarajevo Haggadah: Music of the Book, composed by Bosnian-born accordionist Merima Ključo, traces the incredible journey of this most treasured manuscript that was smuggled from Spain during the Inquisition, hidden from Nazis during WWII by a Muslim librarian, saved from the ravages of the 1992 Bosnian War, and eventually restored to the National Museum in Sarajevo. Inspired by the musical traditions of Spain, Italy, Austria, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ključo collaborates with pianist Seth Knopp and artist Bart Woodstrup to create a multimedia performance exploring the Sarajevo Haggadah as a symbol of diaspora and return. The work is the 2013-2014 New Jewish Culture Network’s commission and touring project. Produced in partnership with New Center LIVE, stay for a post-concert discussion with Merima and Geraldine Brooks, author of People of The Book, the historical novel that inspired this production.

Reserved Seat Tickets: $36 (includes post-event reception), $25, Students: $15 are available by clicking here.

Thurs, Apr 24, 8:30pm
Jalopy Theatre and School of Music
315 Columbia Street,
Brooklyn, New York

Join us for a fantastic evening of music with...
9:00 - Eva Salina Primack - "Eva’s rich, versatile, agile, deep and powerful voice and her enthusiastic, skillful, inspired and inspiring teaching have led her to quickly become a reknowned singer, interpreter, and teacher of Traditional Balkan Vocal music."

9:45 - Lisa Gutkin - w/ Uri Sharlin on accordion
& Rémy Yulzari, Double Bassist
As Grammy-winning violinist and song writer for The Klezmatics, Gutkin has consistently proven a masterful musician. But fans who have only witnessed her within the context of the Klezmatics have experienced just a fragment of what this multi-faceted artist is capable of producing. She might swing seamlessly from traditional Irish fiddle tunes to blues, Balkan or Appalachian sounds. Or she might put the violin down altogether, pick up a tenor guitar and sing one of her own universally resonant songs. Wherever she goes Gutkin has an uncanny way of taking the audience with her.

10:30 - Dolunay NYC - Dolunay (Turkish for “full moon”) plays the songs of the people of Turkish descent who lived across Rumeli, the southern Balkan region of the Ottoman Empire. Dolunay brings new life to the timeless songs and melodies of this region, known for its rich cultural diversity. Based in Brooklyn, the group features top-notch musicians from the NY music scene.

From the Balkans to Balochistan: Sandaraa & Merita Halili and The Raif Hyseni Orchestra

Saturday, May 17, 6:30pm
(le) poisson rouge
158 Bleecker St.
NYC

Multiculturalism at its finest!

6:30PM: Balkan Dance Workshop
7:00PM: Merita Halili & The Raif Hyseni Orchestra
8:45PM Sandaraa

Merita Halili is one of Albania’s top performers, renowned for her stunning voice, prodigious range and exquisite vocal technique. Raif Hyseni, originally from the Republic of Kosova (which recently declared its independence from the Serbia after 100 years), leads the most sought-after Albanian music ensemble in the United States. Together their performances offer masterful interpretations of instrumentals and urban folk songs from both Albania and the Republic of Kosovo. Recent performance highlights include engagements at The Kennedy Center, The Lied Center of Kansas, New York’s Lincoln Center, and London’s famed Barbican Cantre.

Sandaraa
Lahore meets Brooklyn where the Hudson flows down from Himalayan headwaters. A magical world of global sounds comes alive when superstar Pakistani vocalist Zeb Bangash joins forces with a retinue of leading Brooklyn musicians led by clarinetist/composer Michael Winograd to unlock the secrets of Pakistan’s traditional musics – a culturally diverse region conjuring cosmopolitan Silk Road cities, ecstatic mystics, Dravidian settlements lost to the sands of time, as well as the contemporary complexities of post-colonial nationhood. SANDARAA explores a vast repertoire of South Asian musical traditions while blending it with the sounds and sensibilities of Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and Brooklyn!

Tavche Gravche

Thu, May 22, 7pm
Drom
85 Ave A,
NYC

Hailing from New York City's bustling streets, Tavche Gravche brings forth a fresh take on traditional Balkan tunes, as well as evocative originals by the group's members. Macedonian-born and Juilliard educated, clarinetist Vasko Dukovski is a concert performer dedicated to breathing new life into the music of his roots. Steeped in both jazz and flamenco, Israeli-born guitarist Dan Nadel provides the fiery textural and harmonic palette for the band's music. Jazz bassist Daniel Ori, also from Israel, is the quartet's founder, and his luxurious sound is its foundation. Master Macedonian percussionist Aleksander Petrov graces the stage with his magic and frees the entire band to go beyond their unique blend of sounds, cultures, rhythms, colors, and become an all-encompassing adventure for the listeners and themselves. TavChe GravChe blends haunting Macedonian and Mediterranean melodies in a dynamic improvisational atmosphere, maintaining the explosive dance-able rhythms and energy of the Balkan music. While only working together a short time, the quartet has already created an impressive itinerary of NYC performances, including a center stage concert at the city's 2013 annual Balkan Festival.

Inspector Gadje, San Francisco, CA, 7 Feb 2015

Inspector Gadje at Kafana Balkan Saturday February 7, 2015. 155 Fell St, San Francisco 9pm. Our 12 piece band will be joined by the celebrated Macedonian/Turkish clarinet maestro Ismail Lumanovski flying in from New York to celebrate the 8th anniversary of the Bay's most bumpin' Balkan dance party. Inspector Gadje brings a big sound to the beautiful brass band music of the Balkans - inciting joy and dancing from the first downbeat. Our name is a wink to the 1980's cartoon show "Inspector Gadget," and also to the band's "gadje" (non-Romani) identity and their efforts to breaking "Gypsy" stereotypes.

32nd Annual Zlatne Uste Golden Festival

Jan 13th & 14th, 2017
Grand Prospect Hall
263 Prospect Ave,
Brooklyn, New York 11215

Joy is the modus vivendi for this Pan-Balkan gathering, and music is the recipe, bringing the traditional, the experimental, elders, youth, foreign-born, and American-born all to feast at the same generous table. With more than 50 groups contributing their time and talents, you will find your cup of tea (as well as some feta, dolma, and spiced meat morsels). High spirits are fueled by such preeminent performers as Eleanor Reissa with Frank London’s Klezmer Brass Allstars, or Merita Halili, Raif Hyseni & Montclair State University Ensemble, while burgeoning talents shine in teen band Cocek Nation and Young Bulgarian Voices New York. Enchantment pervades the Atrium where Tenores de Aterúe, the Yale Slavic Chorus, and others immerse listeners in vocal wonderment. Brooklyn’s own beloved Balkan brass acts (Slavic Soul Party, Raya) are well represented, and of course Zlatne Uste, New York’s pioneering Balkan brass band and festival sponsors, performs both nights. A complete schedule will be posted on the website
