To the explosive music of the fabulous Fishtank Ensemble this friday. Roma, klezmer, flamenco and Japanese, French swing, Transylvanian… Amazing music!

Some of the songs in their new album Super RaoulBordeas , Ringo Bushi (or the “Apple Song”), Le Kidnappeur, Hopa Di Bida, Shamisen Master and Suite Romaine.

Listening to them perform at this tiny, ill-lit, but cozy room brought back memories of an interesting baroque concert I attended at a small church in Austria several years ago. Only with a generous dose of Snatch added in. ;)

Some really cool instruments too – do you know how the Violatromba sounds? or (ok, this might be more common) heard someone play a saw?
