Orchester Praževica’s Gypsy Soul Party

Date:

Location:Downstairs

Venue:Orchester Praževica's Gypsy Soul Party

 

Orchester Praževica sounds like an Eastern Euro block party blending Slavic jazz, Gypsy music, and TurboFolk. Resistance is futile, this is TurboFolk: high-energy dance music drawing on the tradition of Eastern European czardas and Gypsy swing but widely influenced by jazz and blues.

Under the direction of Slovak-born and -raised guitarist and singer Tomáš Drgoň, this band delivers an honest, authentic, and entertaining mix of folklore, jazz, and dance music suitable for everything from upscale clubs to dives, jazz festivals to mosh pits, arts receptions to underground galleries.

Orchester Praževica has shared stages with the Hungarian Gypsy folk supergroup Parno Graszt, the Romanian Gypsy brass legends Fanfare Ciocarlia, the frantic DC outfit Black Masala, and other greats on the “not so mainstream” music scene.
