Raya Brass Band
Raya Brass Band
Since 2008 Raya Brass Band (raybrassband.com) has energized clubs, international festivals, rooftop parties, and subway cars with its hard-driving, original brass band music. The six members of the band bring their unique voices to the group, creating a sound informed as much by their love for the fierce and seductive music of the Balkans as it is by New Orleans brass bands, punk rock. Featuring trumpet, sax, accordion, tuba, and percussion, this band wails, sweats, and shouts alongside its audience.
West Philadelphia Orchestra
West Philadelphia Orchestra
West Philadelphia Orchestra plays music
that is mostly rooted in Eastern European folk music traditions, but we do it with our own voices, Philadelphia voices nourished by our jazz heritage, tinged with punk rock, soul, and cheesesteaks, and blended with the voices of our community.
As a village band, we aim to uplift, inspire, and unify the Philadelphia community by playing music that renders boundaries obsolete and represents excellence.
We play concerts on big stages, concerts in tiny corners; we play house parties and block parties; benefits and protest rallies; weddings and any occasion for celebration; and everywhere we play, feet stomp, hands clap, hips sway, people grab hold of one another, lift their glasses, and celebrate life, absurdity, and what is best in us.
DJ Joro Boro
Crypto Crunk Charlatan from the Balkans. Joro-Boro established himself as a DJ with his seven year residency alongside Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello) at the Bulgarian Bar (Mehanata) in New York City . He has toured with Balkan Beat Box and has performed with artists ranging from Bassnectar to Omar Souleyman. Joro-Boro has released on If The Kids Records (Gemany), Generation Bass Records (UK/Netherlands), Barbes Records (USA), and Vlad (France) among others.
