Win Tickets to Balkan Beat BoxMarch 10th, 2010
Ori Kaplan, formerly in Gogol Bordello, and Tamir Muskat, of Firewater, were born in Israel and met in Brooklyn. They were united by a love of music, and playing together—as Balkan Beat Box—they blend Balkan, klezmer and Mediterranean sounds with dub, electronica and hip-hop. The duo, joined by a rotating group of musicians, has put out a couple of albums since 2005. The third, Blue Eyed Black Boy, will be released next month. But you won’t need to wait that long to check out their new music because Balkan Beat Box (above, playing “Hermetico”) is playing Webster Hall on Saturday. Want to go? The House List is giving away two tickets.
