Slavic Soul Party
Join Flushing Town Hall for an electrifying evening of music with Slavic Soul Party! This nine-piece brass band will have you grooving to their unique blend of Fiery Balkan brass, irresistible beats, Roma (Gypsy) accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops. Hailed as NYC’s official #1 brass band for BalkanSoul GypsyFunk, Slavic Soul Party! transforms the sounds of New York life through a Balkan brass filter, creating fresh music that reflects themes of immigration, integration, and ingenuity.
The night’s program will kick off with…
A 7:00 PM exclusive dance workshop, where you can dive deeper into the band’s musical influences and learn about their innovative approach to blending different cultural elements.
Then, at 8:00 PM, the concert will begin, taking you on a musical journey through their captivating repertoire, including tunes from their recent record, “SSP! Plays Duke Ellington’s Far East Suite.”
This sixth album pays homage to the Ellington opus while infusing it with the band’s distinct flavor, resulting in a truly heavenly match of cultural boundaries and individual creativity.
