Exciting global music DJ/performance collective to perform for one night in NYC this summer at Joe's Pub July 13

Blending electronic music with hard-edged folk music from the Balkans, North Africa, and the Middle East, the exciting and internationally acclaimed collective Balkan Beat Box is out to prove that all the world is, indeed, a stage -- and that we are all gypsies. A band of New Yorkers, Israelis, Africans, and Bulgarians, led by ex-Gogol Bordello member Ori Kaplan and Firewater / Big Lazy's Tamir Muskat, this group brings together folk traditions with electronic beats, video projections, and a rotating multitude of guest artists including the Bulgarian Chicks, Victoria Hannah, Jeremiah Lockwood, gnawa player Hasan Ben Nafar, Israeli MC Tomer Yosef, and more!

*Entry to Joe's Pub includes a FREE copy of the new JDub compilation, "Rooftop Roots," featuring 2 tracks from the upcoming Balkan Beat Box CD
