5/21: Kaladrios

Posted by novoscene on May 21, 2008

Kaladrios is a Berkeley based group focusing on Greek, Armenian, Turkish, and Albanian traditional folk and dance music from the Eastern Mediterranean. The lineup includes violinist, oud player, and singer Aya Davidson; clarinetist Greg Jenkins; Dennis Demakos on laouto and vocals; percussionist-singer Sandy Hollister; and singer Lily Storm.

Don’t know much about the band, but the tracks on their myspace are a cool departure from the usual art galleries, hip hop, spoken word, random parties etc. Not that there’s anything wrong with those, but when’s the last time you heard a Bay Area 5 piece w/o at least one MC and not even a whiff of guitar. And they’ve got an oud and a laouto in the same band.  The night promises to be a musical education for those used to hearing their music chopped, screwed and remixed. I’m going and I’m taking notes people. I just might learn somethin’-kwan
