FLYING ORKESTAR & BALKAN PARTY WITH MOLOTOV BROTHERS & DJ BALKALIENTE
Saturday 8 October from 20.00
Flying Orkestar stepping in as the new headliner after Toporkestra cancelled due to visa problem
Flying Orkestar are notorious for their explosive shows mixing Balkan sounds with Rock, Funk, Hip-hop, Latin and Oriental tunes, driven by an irresistible wanderlust and a furious desire to promote joyful and energetic Balkan music, Flying Orkestar will rock Melusina presenting their fifth album (‘Miss America’, released in May 2016). Since founding the band in their native ‘Bukravia’ in 2008, the 7 band members have been conquering thousands of hearts and Balkan music lovers from France to Slovenia, with their accordion, synthesizer and brass instruments. We are convinced that Flying Orkestar will perform a more than solid follow-up on the memorable shows of the bands Fanfara Transylvania and Klezmafour.
The Molotov Brothers is a collaboration between the wild DJ Balkaliente (beats & trombone) and the talented clarinet & sax player Samuel Maquin, a specialist in Eastern European music. This dangerous duo takes the audience by storm with shows full of whirling and bubbling energy. As a genuine laboratory of Balkan sounds blending gypsy and traditional music flavours with electronic machines and live instruments, the Molotov Brothers offer a highly explosive cocktail of feverish dance and memorable moments!
DJ Balkaliente is a multi-talented musician and DJ delivering hot chili sets in Balkan style, spiced up with his live trombone. Recycling the most acid Balkan beats melded with the best of cumbia/afro/Brazil/reggae/ska/drum’n’bass/electro, his mixes are like a tsunami of positive energy that really turns up the heat on the dancefloor!

JAZZ CINÉ-CONCERT BY BASHAVEL & JAM SESSION
Bashavel, a five-member group of outstanding musicians from Slovakia (and Moldova), will perform a live soundtrack to the silent film Jánošík by Jaroslav Siake¾ (1921), the well-known story of the legendary popular hero Jánošík, a highwayman who ‘stole from the rich and gave to the poor’. The band’s unmistakable sound is an original blend of traditional folk motifs with modern jazz. Bashavel have performed the soundtrack on many occasions in various countries, and this is their first ever performance in Luxembourg. The Slovak band Bashavel was formed in 2006. It is a joint project of jazz musicians who create manifold moods, colours and rhythms out of folk songs and tunes using cymbal, piano, drums, double bass and violin.
After the cinéconcert, the band members will please the audience with a special bonus in the form of a jam session in the Brasserie le Neumünster (just a few steps from Salle Krieps). Make sure to come to this second part of the evening and enjoy the skills of the musicians in the cosy setting of the Brasserie with a glass of wine or beer. And if you are a musician yourself, feel free to join the jam!
