Brooklyn Arts Council presents Persian and Balkan Break-out!
This continent-hopping double bill brings together two genre-busting bands that update rich folk traditions with their own contemporary sensibilities. Persian-American roots rock outfit Vatan puts a country twist on Middle Eastern folk music, pickin’ and grinnin’ on a Persian stringed tar. Then, the Eva Salina Band performs the wailing, brass-heavy ballads of Eastern Europe, featuring soaring, soul-shaking vocals by Balkan music guru Eva Primack.
