It will be our great honor and pleasure to tour with Sandaraa in May. Don't miss it!

SANDARAA
SANDARAA is being hailed as “one of the most interesting and exciting things to happen in the New York music scene.” This new musical collaboration explores a vast repertoire of South Asian musical traditions blended with the sounds and sensibilities of Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and New York. Sandaraa is co-fronted by one of Pakistan and Afghanistan's most loved vocalists, Zebunnisa (Zeb) Bangash, and Brooklyn's Klezmer clarinet virtuoso Michael Winograd. They imagined a group exploring the connections between Balochi, Afghani, Klezmer music and more, and have recruited a diverse cast of fearless innovators to join them.

RAYA BRASS BAND.
Since 2008 Raya Brass Band has energized clubs, international festivals, rooftop parties, and subway cars with its hard-driving, original brass band music. The six members of the band bring their unique voices to the group, creating a sound informed as much by their love for the fierce and seductive music of the Balkans as it is by New Orleans brass bands, punk rock, and global music. Featuring trumpet, sax, accordion, tuba, and percussion, this band wails, sweats, and shouts alongside its audience.

Please tell your friends in these areas about our tour dates and if you have any ideas for Boston on May 22, please let me know ASAP.

Looking forward to seeing some EEFC friends in the week ahead,
