Neighborhood Concert: Slavic Soul Party!

BRIC House
Nine-member Balkan funk band Slavic Soul Party! delivers “some of the most danceable Balkan-flavored pop this side of the Adriatic” (Global Rhythm). A fiery mix of Balkan brass, accordion, virtuosic jazz, and pulsing grooves, Slavic Soul Party! is influenced by its members’ Eastern European, Mexican, and Asian roots, as well as American jazz and soul. This concert will also feature new works inspired by the song “Somewhere” from West Side Story, written and performed by young people in the Brooklyn community in collaboration with Slavic Soul Party! as part of The Somewhere Project, a citywide creative learning project that honors Carnegie Hall’s 125th anniversary.
