Musicians hailing from the UK, Serbia, Sweden and Turkey perform virtuosic, toe-tapping klezmer, Gypsy music, soulful songs and the best Balkan dance tunes. Releasing their fourth studio
album, First Dance on Second Avenue, they take you on a journey sampling polyphonic singing from Bulgaria, a Serbian song about a pigeon on the raspberries, a steamy quarrel between
mother-in-laws in a Turkish sauna, a duet between a father and daughter about who she’s going to marry – in the end she chooses the drunken one! – and a love song for a Gypsy girl with
penetrating green eyes.
Expect to go home feeling nourished, elated, and saying ‘Nice one!’.
