Party Band Invasion

Saturday, January 07, 2012

High energy party bands invade this New Sounds program. We'll hear from the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble out of Boston, the MarchFourth Marching Band from Portland, OR, and the Chicago-based party band Mucca Pazza (Mad Cow.) When your numbers are some 15-30 strong, the band can't help but be a rollicking good time wherever they go.

When your numbers are some 15-30 strong, the band can't help but be a rollicking good time wherever they go. Plus, there's some Balkan music by way of Brooklyn and Berlin, along with Cajun-klezmer group The Zydepunks from New Orleans to keep the party stomping. With luck, there's enough space for Orchestre Baobab and Krakatoa as well.

Roma and Romanian Roots

Monday, August 02, 2010

Hear some frenzied Romanian gypsy punk from the New York-based Luminescent Orchestrii on this edition of New Sounds.  Not willing to stop there, they can also rock the klezmer, bust out hip-hop beats and call upon Appalachian fiddle as well.
