#3775: With Tribecastan, Live

Email a Friend

For this New Sounds show, the global ensemble TriBeCaStan brings their combination of world, funk, folk- jazz and twisted word-play to our performance studio.  The band is from the invented country of Tribecastan, and plays its own imaginary folk music, in the vein of such innovators as Penguin Café Orchestra or 3Mustaphas3. Members of the band lift instruments from any tradition they want to – like Indian sitar or Turkish bowed lute; or they’ll adapt another tradition’s music for unintended instruments, like playing Arabic music for banjo and augment everything with a solid jazz horn section.  Listen to some of this folk music without boundaries, including new music from their most recent record, “Goddess Polka Dottess,” on which the band travels from India to Ethiopia, to Jamaica and Eastern Europe and back to New York.

See TriBeCaStan at DROM, this Friday September 18, 2015, to open the NY Gypsy Festival
