SLAVIC SOUL PARTY

Fiery Balkan brass, irresistible beats, Roma (Gypsy) accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops make Slavic Soul Party! NYC’s official #1 brass band for BalkanSoulGypsyFunk. These nine musicians pump the sounds of New York life through a Balkan brass filter, making new music out of immigration, integration, and ingenuity. The band's Tuesday night residency in Brooklyn has become a destination for music fans from around the world, and is famous for "delivering a great time." (New York Times) In over a decade of touring North America, Europe, and beyond, SSP! has performed everywhere from Serbian schoolyards to prison yards, Turkish palaces to Russian baths, dive bars to Carnegie Hall, from Amsterdam to Zacatecas and Austria to Zimbabwe. The group’s most recent record “SSP! Plays Duke Ellington’s Far East Suite” (Ropeadope) is their sixth album; it “honors the tunes and spirit of the Ellington opus while adding their own flavor” (Chicago Reader), is "a pretty heavenly match" (TimeOut NY), and “a manifesto on cultural boundaries, historical lineage and how they play into individual creativity.” (Wall St. Journal)
