Klezmer band Ot Azoj

20 September 2014

Swing Sinners
A Retrolicious (Electro) Swing party for Hepcats and Kittens.

Get ready for a fun-tastic, glamorous and sexy (with a wink) underground all-nite event with (Electro)-Swing, Gypsy, Balkan, Exotica and other vintage, retro & jivey influences.

The Retrolicious deejays (who bring you Swing Sinners) think of the Roaring Twenties 'till turbulent Forties, not as a black and white movie, but as a colorful era where many a great development took place in the arts, music and...at parties! At Swing Sinners you will experience the translation of those 'warm' and exciting vintage sounds and sights: re-arranged, newly recorded, re-mixed and catapulted right into the present!

Ot Azoj plays an energetic yet subtle mix of klezmer and oriental music from Molvania. In vivid compositions they bring to live this land of feast and mud located somewhere between Greece and Russia. Klezmer traditions, Balkan beats, Turkish sounds and Gypsy scales are all mixed together to make a groovy blended klezmer.

C'mon all you divas, mobsters & gunmolls, rascals & flapper babes: dress up Roaring 20s, flashy 40s. Think Great Gatsby, Charlie Chaplin, Boardwalk Empire, Betty Boop, The Godfather... Although everyone gets into the party, it enhances the atmosphere greatly if you make an effort dressing the part!
