Affectionately dubbed the “punk rock version of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares” (NY Music Daily), Black Sea Hotel “performs with a refined emotion that hits with the magnetic pull of rock-bound sirens“ (Paul Schomer (Producer, NPR). The powerhouse Balkan a cappella trio are known for their outrageous vocal sonorities, yet can move audiences to tears with their lyricism. This tenderness and wildness flow from age-old songs meant to chronicle and seduce, to flirt and to calm. Joining Black Sea Hotel, Wednesday, September 3rd, are the jagged-gentle fiddlers of the ‘gypsy tango klezmer punk’ band Luminescent Orchestrii (teamed up with Kyle Sanna) the accordion wielding babes of Main Squeeze Quintet, and the white-wearing tongue-speaking vocal trio Hydra. This will be a night of fierce musical power with shape-shifting sounds, ranging from punk to baroque, trance to folk, ancient to avant-garde.
