Re-imagined songs of Balkan Romani legends from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, but this is not a “Balkan Band” The commanding, luscious voice of Eva Salina brings a distinctive new sound to a historically male repertoire, taking the music out of genre and creating something greater than the sum of its parts. This new project features Eva’s singing and is fed by the wellspring of talents of Frank London (trumpet, alto horns, keyboards, arranging), Patrick Farrell (accordion, alto horn, farfisa, arranging), Ron Caswell (tuba),John Carlson (trumpet), Peter Stan (accordion), Brandon Seabrook (guitar), and others.
This band offers a refreshing departure from the traditionalism that so often stops culture in its tracks. These courageous, witty, hard-hitting musicians bring with them distinct musical personalities and lifetimes of diverse musical experience, forming a new and exciting project unlike any other.
This band is currently in the process of recording a full-length album to be released in late 2013.
