TriBeCaStan New Songs From the Old Country
9
For their fourth studio album, New York genre-benders TriBeCaStan continue their planet crawling adventures, offering up 16 delightful tracks of kaleidoscopic, pan-ethnic party music. Combining old-timey Americana and eccentric jazz with a polyglot of musical styles from across the globe, this nine-piece ensemble is an exemplar of what world music should be: infused with as many cultures as humanly possible. The beauty of TriBeCaStan is not only that they're ambassadors for many Westerners to new musical styles, it's that they perform their songs with such an energetic panache that everyone who comes into contact with them becomes an instant fan. Whether it's a jazz-meets-klezmer stomp or an African-Appalachian frenzy, every tune is performed with such enthusiasm and vigour that it's hard not to immerse oneself in the energy. With their everything-but-the-kitchen-sink brand of instrument selection and immediately danceable tunes, TriBeCaStan are an unstoppable force, a musical cyclone raging across the world. (Evergreene)
