The Klezmatics are world-renowned superstars of the klezmer
world. They erupted out of New York City�s East Village in 1986
and revitalized klezmer for the new century. Their klezmer is
one steeped in Jewish spiritualism and Eastern European tradition
while incorporating more provocative themes such as social rights
and anti-fundamentalism with eclectic musical influences such
as gospel, punk, and Arab, African, and Balkan rhythms. Over
the course of nearly twenty years, they have released six albums
of wild, spiritual, provocative, reflective, and ecstatically
danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional
Driven by Famoro Dioubate's rockin' African xylophone, Kakande
is full of surprises. Athletic African flute and warm cello
grooves join a guitarist from Bembeya Jazz and the heartfelt
vocals of Missia. "The African Tina Turner" Diabat�. The group
carries an 800 year old musical tradition to America� and will
make you shake your booty!
The Demolition String Band is a potent mix of twangy honky-tonk,
bluegrass and a good strong dose of raucous rock n roll. The
band grew out of the meeting of Chicago born Elena Skye, who
played in her first bluegrass band at the tender age of 15,
and North Carolina native Boo Reiners. They've opened for such
diverse acts as Joan Osborne, Patti Smith, Asleep At The Wheel,
Ramblin' Jack Elliot, and Southern Culture On The Skids. DSB
is finishing up their fourth CD "Lovin'," recorded in Meban,
NC with Rick Miller of Southern Culture On The Skids producing.
