Hungry March Band; West Philadelphia Orchestra

Hungry March Band

Roaring out of Brooklyn comes the Hungry March Band, NYC's legendary street brass march band in the anarchic style that has become their trademark . Put on your dancing shoes and break out the fancy threads because they’ve got a party going on - a blazing parade of flesh, blood, steel, brass and wood. They are the music of the people! HMB musical repertoire consists of original compositions written by band members as well as scores selected from our multi-cultural world community. These songs range from New Orleans street bands, European brass traditions, Gypsy/Roma classics, wedding brass bands from India, the jazz world and the global community of NYC. The band is an ever evolving musical experiment influenced and inspired from Brooklyn’s backyard with Latin flavor, punk rock noise, hip hop beats and music of the streets.

West Philadelphia Orchestra

With a diverse line-up of professional Philadelphia musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, West Philadelphia Orchestra is a unique live ensemble in today’s auto-tuned musical world. They began playing Romanian ballads, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and Klezmer in late 2006, and have continued expanding their repertoire of Eastern European music. The band also plays original tunes which blend other sounds, like jazz and classical, together with traditional Balkan sounds. As much a community as a band, WPO’s performances are celebratory events. With blistering beats and walls of brass, they inspire audiences to hold hands, dance, and slip the yoke of the homogenized culture industry. Their debut record, released in fall of 2008 and called ‘WPO,’ is a unique combination of traditional Balkan music and sounds, and is an expression of their radical collectivity. Their newest CD, "Live at Tritone," captures the frenetic energy, genre-bending compositions, and communal spirit of their monthly Balkan dance parties

Joro-Boro is a crunk charlatan born in Bulgaria.

He plays and promotes etnoteck, glitch-folk and post-national bass - the dirty local side of globalization force-fed back into a party without borders detonating the conglomerated mono-culture.

Joro-Boro hosted MoGlo (Modern Global) on Radio New York 91.5FM, has toured with Balkan Beat Box, and has performed with artists ranging from Bassnectar to Tinariwen.

He established himself over seven years as the resident DJ in the Bulgarian Bar (Mehanata) in New York City. In 2007 he left his residency there and developed the charlatan/artist alter ego Joro De Boro.
