ANTWERP GIPSY SKA ORCHESTRA
A steamy brew of Eastern European gipsy music and Jamaican ska, seasoned with a rebellious spirit? That has been Antwerp Gipsy-Ska Orkestra’s trademark for the last
decade. The trailblazing band now finishes it off with Kilo Gipsyska, their third album. Following Tuttilegal (2007) and I Lumia Mo Kher (2011), this one really accentuates these
musical globetrotters’ pioneering role.
Their music is nomad, multilingual and universal.They´re influenced by a kaleidoscopic sonority: Balkan furor, Arabic drifting, Latin warmth, Afro-Beat refinement, and explosions of Turbofolk and Ska.
The Balkanoes fuse Eastern European and Jewish music with a joyous energy to guarantee a Balkan bash of mammoth proportions. Moving seamlessly from traditional klezmer to gypsy grooves and unique takes on well-known classics, The Balkanoes will keep you dancing all night long!
DJ Kobayashi is also a member of Gypsy Hill.
Gypsy Hill is the latest project to come from London DJs / producers: DJ Kobayashi and Herbert Newbert.
In Gypsy Hill they bring together the balls and the brass from the Balkans, surf-rock Mediterranean guitar lines, Arabic & Jewish melodies, massive bass-lines and a whole heap of electronics, scratching and beats.
