Les Yeux Noirs, Los Angeles, CA, Oct 12

Thursday, October 12, 8:00 p.m.
Groove to the energy and emotion of Gypsy-klezmer octet Les Yeux Noirs (The Black Eyes). Headed by virtuoso violinists and brothers Eric and Olivier Slabiak, the Paris-based band innovatively weaves the musical traditions of the Jews and the Gypsies in celebration of their distinct cultures and historical struggles against persecution. Dynamic, soulful, and often reaching feverish heights, the infectious sound of Les Yeux Noirs leaves audiences dancing in the aisles. Part of the series The Long Walk to Freedom.

"Blending funky gypsy undertones with old-school Eastern European folk, jazz, and classical influences, Les Yeux Noirs delivers an eclectic and electric set."—San Francisco Bay Times
