Balkan Mondays: Balkan Jam

June 24, 2019

Balkan Mondays: Tavche Gravche performance has been postponed until a later date – instead we will have a Balkan music jam. $10





Hailing from New York City’s bustling streets, Tavche Gravche merges haunting Macedonian and Mediterranean melodies, both traditional and original, with dynamic improvisational elements; all the while maintaining the explosive dance-able rhythms and energy of Balkan music.

Macedonian-born clarinetist Vasko Dukovski is a concert performer dedicated to breathing new life into the music of his roots. Steeped in both jazz and flamenco, Israeli-born guitarist Dan Nadel provides the fiery textural and harmonic palette for the band’s music. Jazz bassist Daniel Ori, also from Israel, is the group’s founder, and his prominent sound is its foundation. Together, the trio pushes the boundaries of this unique blend of cultures, rhythms and colors to become an all-encompassing adventure for listeners.

Tavche Gravche is set to release its sophomore record, Sonic Pollination, later this year, featuring master percussionist Satoshi Takeishi and Bulgrian vocalist Mimi Berkova.

Seyyah at Brooklyn Maqam Hang

May 21, 2019

Seyyah performs folk and classical music from Asia Minor. Commanding performances by each ensemble member, as well as the ensemble as a whole, blur the lines between folk and classical in lively sets that are equally at home in the recital hall or the meyhane. Over the past few years Seyyah has emerged as one of New York’s best representations of Asia Minor chamber music. Seyyah’s ensemble members are some of the most visible musicians on the middle eastern music scene in the Mid-Atlantic and together they generate an important contribution to the middle eastern music scene in America.

8:00pm – Seyyah 9:00pm – Open Jam Session Admission: $10 Doors at 7:30pm
