About the performers:
Art Bailey's Orkestra Popilar is an excellent new Jewish music ensemble led by accordionist and pianist Art Bailey. Its debut cd Branch From The Tree features fresh interpretations of rarely heard material originally recorded by Romanian-born cymbalom master and Lower East Side restaurateur, Joseph Moskowitz. It also explores early 20th century Jewish fiddle pieces, improvisation, newly composed music, and pieces from the klezmer and Eastern European repertoire.
An important and active member of the emerging new Colombian music scene, Coba is a New York-based ensemble featuring compositions and arrangements by guitarist Sebastian Cruz. Since 2001 Coba has been a platform to explore new approaches to traditional Afro-Colombian music through original songwriting and un-traditional instrumentation, offering a very personal and fresh take on a community's ancient and profound legacy. Coba’s latest cd is Cancion Mandala on Chonta Records.
Kaiku is a New York-based collective of talented and experienced Finnish and American musicians mixing spirited Finnish singing and world music instrumentation. The group's signature sound comes from the two fine young singers, Jaana Kantola and Paula Jaakkola. Kaiku’s songs are inspired by Finnish folklore and poetry spiced up with a nice sense of humor. The band’s debut cd is Taalla tanssivi / Here We Dance.
