Product Description

Amazon.com

Slavic Soul Party bills itself as the "No. 1 brass band for Balkan-soul-gypsy-funk." While the competition may be a bit thin in this niche genre, there is no argument about the validity of the tag. The band, made up of members of varying backgrounds from the U.S. and Japan, introduces the brash-but-intricate horn lines of the Balkans and adds some New Orleans grit and groove to the stew. On the Brooklyn-based group's third album, one can't help but marvel at the ensemble playing of knotty horn lines on tunes by leader Matt Moran (the percolating "Ruchenista!" stands out) or Slavic traditionals like the sadly romantic "Djelem Djelem," which features guest vocalist Eva Salina Primack. Those ready to party need look no further than the uproarious "Vrainje" or the title track. No matter which direction the nine-piece band goes, it easily takes the listener along for the ride. –-Tad Hendrickson

When I first heard about this on NPR, I immediately got a big grin. This is a fun, funky collection of tunes. I'm also a big fan of The Art of Noise, so take that into account. This isn't full of sound effects, just cool tunes with a fun beat.

Crazy sounds from the intersection of Eastern Europe and Brooklyn NY. Klezmer crossed with the marching band sounds of Carnival in Luzern (KuKu music...)

A must for those former high school brass band geeks! I listen to it daily just to get my freek on!

Wow just try to listen to this music sitting down.
When you get tired of every other kind of music,
this Russian Techno Gypsy stuff is really cool. Play
it loud in the car with the windows down, all the
trumpets and stuff, makes you want to jump around.

I never tire of it. Sure it's different, but that's one of the main reasons it's so great. Like most gypsy music, it's dark but peppy, sometimes frantic even. Mad fun. Highly recommended.
