Future World Funk rocks into the New Year with DJs Max Reinhardt (The Shrine/various radio nationwide) and Lemez Lovas (Oi Va Voi / YaD) for a Balkan Gypsy Afro Caribbean roadblock guaranteed to blow the roof off... funky africanisms meet trumpet fanfares as Lagos collides with Ljubljana in a cascade of shimmering broken beats. And wailing loud and clear over the beats, virtuoso Tigran Aleksanyan on duduk, bringing the house down with the most sublime wood wind instrument on this earth, which like Tigran comes from Armenia. Born in the Ararat Mountains ...the man lives only for his music and his duduk.
