It’s no secret that we here at TC Jewfolk have a bit of a music crush on Balkan Beat Box. So when we heard that they’ll be at The Cedar on July 19th, we jumped on the chance to hook one lucky reader up with a pair of tickets to the show (see below for your chance to win).
Not familiar with BBB? You should be.
Their roots are Mediterranean, their foundations are solid rock+reggae, and their hearts are in New York. Balkan Beat Box transcend categories to bring a new breed of 21st century music, deeply connected to their folk upbringing yet forward-thinking, which appeals to audiences across geographical and stylistic borders. The Cedar says: “The sweatiest, grittiest, most energetic bunch of roaming gypsy rockers you’ll encounter anywhere, Israeli band Balkan Beat Box have become legendary at The Cedar for their incendiary performances.”
And it’s not hard to see why when you check out these videos or listen to clips from their latest CD online.
