Release the goats and fill your flask with plum brandy, because on Wednesday, February 27th, you’re ditching the farm and heading down to MALABOMBA! L.A.’s favorite international dance party returns to La Cita to get down and dirty with the funky Bulgarian sounds of Orkestar MÉZÉ! In September of 2010 we performed our first ever "official" concert, and the place/party was MALABOMBA!. And what a party it was!?!? It surely gave people an idea of the peasant funky craziness that was to come in the future. And here we are now, two and a half years later, one album released, our music featured on Californian and Bulgarian radio stations and praised by media on both sides of the ocean, reuniting with our friends from MALABOMBA! to blow the roof off of La Cita Bar in Downtown LA.
Whether you’re a MALABOMBA! and Orkestar MÉZÉ virgin or you love us long time, you won’t want to miss this one! Crooked dances, blazing horns, sultry vocals, and more funky Balkan madness than you can shake a shepherd’s crook at!
Led by Bulgarian-born performer-composer extraordinaire Milen Kirov, Orkestar MÉZÉ has carved its own path with their original high-energy electro-acoustic brass sound mixing American funk, soul, and jazz with traditional Bulgarian and Balkan music. Boasting band members from Bulgaria, Italy, Turkey, New Zealand, Canada, and the wilds of Van Nuys, this 11-piece ensemble calls its raucous sound "peasant funk.” And we are probably the only band MALABOMBA! has ever hosted that’s on regular rotation on Bulgarian National Radio. Tune in February 27th and get ready to dance uncontrollably!
As always and ever, your hosts DJ Jason Savvy and DJ Cat Hair will be keeping your feet warm before and after the show with their signature blend of Balkan brass, Arabian boogie, house musette, Romany rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic cumbia, and more butt-bumping sounds from the far corners of the globe.
MALABOMBA! - a wild and irreverent international dance party for the City of Angels.
