Thursday Balkan Boogie with Greshka and Innessa
Swing into the fabulous "It's Still a Secret" on Montague road for a delicious cocktail, some nibbles and be blown away by bombastic beats, silly segues and phenomenal French um music. And lots of alliteration.
Have you been feeling run down? You probably have a Vitamin S deficiency. Come to a Greshka gig for a big healthy nourishing dose of Vitamin Silly. They play music from Eastern Europe, gypsy, Balkan, klezmer – and all of it made extra silly with synthesisers, cimbaloms and singalongs. Greshka play music which sounds like the contents of Spongebob Squarepants suitcase as he sets sail for Sweden. There’s snappy sârbăs, synthonic ska and Serbian-style swing. It’s incessantly sporadic, spectacularly stupid, seldom stodgy, syllabically superfluous and unceasingly exceptionally SILLY!
Inessa is a Russian singer/songwriter now living in Australia. Russian folk music roots are clearly influential in her fresh and unique style. With dreamy emotional lyrics sung to a mixture of eclectic styles, Innessa is constantly leaving her audience spellbound...
