Slavic Soul Party – “Taketron” – [Barbes]

Brash and strong as slivovitz this is danceable Balkan-flavored pop from a new NYC band. They mix the “messed-up” rhythms of the Balkans with gypsy music, funk and jazz. This is “heart and feet music” rather than “head music” according to one of the band members. There are great horns and hip-grinding grooves. Actually there’s a bit of gypsy, a bit of Eastern European, some Mexican, some Asian and jazz and even some soul. It’s NYC “neighborhood music” a little bit of this and a bit of that. Well worth playing! AArbor

    Barbes is not just the name of the label – it is also the bar in Brooklyn where Slavic Soul Party plays frequently – it is filled with very happy local enthusiasts of this sort of music – not much room for dancing, but it does happen when SSP is there!
