Balkan Beat Box

April 22, 2017
8:00 pm
The UC Theatre

Sat, Apr 22, 2017, 8:00 pm, Doors: 7:00 pm For over a decade now, ambassadors of groove Balkan Beat Box have kept the world party bumping with deft and exuberant stylistic cross-pollination, and a smoldering lyrical flow. With each entry in its oeuvre, BBB has crafted wildly imaginative grenades of enlightenment and garnered critical acclaim, an engaged fanbase, and earned the respect and admiration of other artists. The collective's latest dance missive, Shout It Out, is an epiphanic entry in its five-album catalog. It's an album of personal reflection ensconced in fiery creativity-it's both anthemic and introspective. Musically, Shout It Out, also represents a fascinating crate digging production breakthrough in terms of crafting that perfectly exotic sonic Molotov cocktail. "We are known to be that band to shout out things that bother us, but this time we went inward and more personal. This album is us revealing who we are as people and what's going on in our personal life," says percussionist and producer Tamir Muskat. Shout It Out, is a masterwork entry in a decade-long dialogue of three visionaries. Reflecting on the secret to keeping BBB inspired, Tamir Muskat says: "We've been able to create this hub of art where we can go into a room, search deep within our souls, and create together. The real mojo behind BBB is our relationships as friends. It's been an amazing journey." Presented by The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall
