Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
Internationally-acclaimed folk artists Baladino are back in Los Angeles by popular demand!
Based in Berlin and Tel Aviv, Baladino performs a fresh and deeply authentic blend of traditional Jewish melodies and modern electronic music. Playing everything from Egyptian darbuka to Armenian duduk, from Ladino classics to rarely heard tunes, they create a vibrant whole. Baladino's musicianship takes songs and jumps into impromptu jams driven by Mediterranean-Gypsy grooves, rock, and electronic music.
Joining Baladino for the evening are special guests La Victoria, an all-female mariachi band from Los Angeles.
At 8 PM on March 3rd, join Baladino for a night of celebrating vibrant cultures, artists, and spirituality at the Pico Union Project (1153 Valencia St, Los Angeles, CA 90015). Tickets are available at http://picounionproject.org/baladino.
Thanks to the Consulate General of Israel for sponsoring this very special event.
With members hailing from Berlin and Tel Aviv, Baladino is a Mediterranean folk band that offers fresh, yet deeply authentic interpretations of Sephardic and Ladino melodies and brings this tradition back into full, fresh dialogue with its trans-Mediterranean past, using extended technique, subtle electronics and improvisation to dust off the predominant heavy-handed approach to Ladino music. With stunning vocals, unexpected instruments, and a pitch-perfect sense of arrangement, the Israeli group melds everything from Egyptian darbuka to Armenian duduk, from Ladino classics to rarely heard tunes, into a sonically vibrant, organic whole. During Baladino’s live performances, songs often form a jumping-off point for instrumental improvisations driven by Mediterranean-Gypsy grooves, yet embracing rock and electronic influences.
