Fiery Balkan brass, hip-grinding American grooves, and ecstatic anthems both new and old: Slavic Soul Party! is just what it says. Brash and strong as slivovitz, these nine musicians have forged a virtuosic new brass band music in the heart of New York City—melding Gypsy, East European, Mexican, and Asian immigrant backgrounds with American jazz and sou—and “developed a reputation for delivering a great time.” (NY Times)
