Neighborhood Concert: Slavic Soul Party!
Fiery Balkan brass, throbbing funk grooves, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops: Slavic Soul Party! delivers exactly what its name promises. These nine musicians bring you Balkan soul and Gypsy funk mashed together with an unpasteurized blend of gospel, dub, jazz, and Latin music, all culled from the streets of New York City. If nothing else, you can depend on Slavic Soul Party! for always “delivering a great time” (The New York Times).
This concert is offered in conjunction with Jacobi Medical Center's Summer Safety Celebration. Between 5–7 PM, Jacobi clinicians will be on hand to teach you and your family how to enjoy a safe and healthy summer! There will be lots of free health and safety giveaways, as well as free refreshments.
Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concert Series and Musical Connections are programs of the Weill Music Institute.
This concert is part of the citywide music festival Make Music New York.
