Vampire Suit, Brooklyn, NY, Jun 17

Vampire Suit draws on Jay Vilnai's unique musical heritage as a Russian- Romanian-Polish descendant raised in Jerusalem around a mix of contemporary and traditional Jewish and Arab music, with a soul for rock n'roll and a BFA in jazz. Couple that with a passion for Bartok and Stravinsky and you end up with all original music that draws on all those influences to create something akin to traditional music for a generation that has so many traditions it calls his. Balkan and Middle-Eastern rhythms are prominent, backed by 20th century composing concepts and jazz improvising. Vampire Suit will be playing June 17th, at 8:00pm at Barbes, corner of 9th St. and 6th Ave. in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
