Balkan Beat Box on the Celebrate Brooklyn schedule this year. I had heard this band as the score for Gallim Dance, at Fall for Dance two years ago. I liked them so much I bought one of their albums (Nu Med) which is now a listening staple.
So last night Balkan Beat Box performed in the park and they were FANTASTIC. Really exactly as I had imagined. The highest energy and joy and rage and wonderful, wonderful, complex ecstatic music.
Guess I have to get their new album.
