JUN 21 2018 6 PM – 8 PM

Blazing Balkan brass, gutbucket funk, Gypsy accordion, and a big bass drum: This just scratches the surface of what Slavic Soul Party! brings to every performance. Inspired by its members’ Eastern European, Mexican, and Asian roots, it stirs up a tasty mix of gospel, dub, jazz, and Latin music. “Global Rhythm” says Slavic Soul Party! delivers “some of the most danceable Balkan-flavored pop this side of the Adriatic.” This concert is a part of New York Music Month, a citywide celebration of New York City’s music industry, artists, and fans presented by the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and NY is Music.
