SXSW 2014: TriBeCaStan a Wall Street Journal standout!

TriBeCaStan SXSW 2014

TriBeCaStan’s performance at SXSW 2014 was a smash success! And despite one weird week for Austin, Texas and the 27-year-old festival, The Wall Street Journal seems to think we were one of the best performances!

“For dedicated fans of rock and pop, SXSW ’14 was rescued by transcendent moments provided by musicians applying their talents … Saturday night, in a program at Russian House that included bands from Argentina, Canada, Israel and the Netherlands, TriBeCaStan, a group of downtown New York musicians, paid tribute to the late jazz trumpeter Don Cherry with a West African-influenced number that featured the hulusi, a Chinese flute. These performances relieved, at least temporarily, the unavoidable conclusion that most musicians might have invested their time more fruitfully in a place where music was the primary focus of attention.”


New TriBeCaStan album “New Songs from the Old Country” out now

Fourth Album Due October 1st from Collective Described by The Village Voice as “Defined by New York Cool, Explorer Energy, and Outer Space Vibes”

As radically multicultural and poly-stylistic as any artists working today, TriBeCaStan is one of contemporary music’s most vibrantly eclectic ensembles, and one that defies standard genre categorizations. The New York-based group of ace instrumentalists from varied musical backgrounds uses diverse instruments from around the globe to create a richly exotic palette of sonic colors. Their fourth studio album, NEW SONGS FROM THE OLD COUNTRY, is out now on Manhattan-based Evergreene Music (October 1, 2013).

With tongue-in-cheek yule tide spirit and holiday chutzpah, we are giving away a free song to save your twisted Christmas! You can download our free tune right HERE.
