Slavic Soul Party
Fiery Balkan brass, throbbing funk grooves, Gypsy accordion wizardry,
and virtuoso jazz chops: Slavic Soul Party! is just what it says.
These nine musicians have created an acoustic mash-up of Balkan and
Gypsy sounds with North American music, weaving the gospel, funk, dub,
jazz, and Latin influences of New York’s neighborhoods seamlessly into
a Balkan brass setting and always "delivering a great time." (New York
Times) "Of all the NYC dance bands that draw on Eastern European
music, Slavic Soul Party! is the coolest." (TimeOut NY)
India born, New York-based songstress Falu - who released her highly anticipated album Foras Road in May – is constantly captivating audiences. She has sparked the interest of all types of music enthusiasts, pleased the toughest of critics, and performed nationally on FOX TV and internationally on National Geographic TV. She has also sung at the prestigious Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center - a special performance for the Dalai Lama – and The White House for President Obama’s first State Dinner in honor of the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. One of Falu’s most stunning performances was at the Time 100 Gala where she performed a duet with Slumdog Millionaire composer A.R. Rahman in front of the one hundred of Time Magazine's most influential people in the world, which included First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
