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.”
It’s been a long winter folks. The endless snow has had us all shivering in our traditional TriBeCaStani robes for months. But that’s all about to change … We’re headed down to Austin, Texas for the 2014 SXSW Music Festival! Thanks to our friends at Rock, Paper Scissors PR we’re kicking off an official showcase at Russian House.
We’ll be rocking out alongside Taj Weekes & Adowa, Dudu Tassa and many others for an evening that celebrates some amazing world music. So come on out to the show, we go on at 8PM sharp!
Date: March 15, 2014
Doors open: 7PM
Venue: Russian House, Austin
Address: 307 E. 5th Street, Austin, Texas

Let’s face it, most holiday muzak is flat-out terrible! Elevators, cafes, and shopping malls waterboard our innocent ears with cheerfully wretched holiday drivel. Yuck!
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way!
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.

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).
To stream or purchase the new album in digital or CD format, visit www.evergreene.bandcamp.com.

Time Out just selected our upcoming Rubin Museum performance as Critic’s Pick:
“As if you couldn’t tell from the krazy moniker: Jeff Greene and John Kruth’s ensemble offers a twisted, quirky take on folk forms, blending down-home roots-rock with accents from across the globe. Expect to hear from last year’s vivacious New Deli, as the group shows off its festive eclecticism at the Rubin.”
RELIX just featured TriBeCaStan in their On The Verge feature:
“TriBeCaStan plays a jazzy, global folk hybrid inspired by New York City’s cross-pollinating musical and cultural community. They blend free jazz, Afghani rhythms, boogie-woogie and Balkan wedding music with an effortless grace that’s always musical and often danceable.”
Not too long ago TriBeCaStan shared the bill with Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth and John Zorn for the “Save the Village” benefit at Poisson Rouge. The New York Times, who called us a “genre-bending jazz and world-music outfit” shot this video of us playing “Blister in the Sun” with former Violent Femmes singer, Gordeon Gano. Good times!

Our performance with Gordon Gano from the Violent Femmes was reviewed in the New York Times! They called our tribe “a genre-bending jazz and world-music outfit”. Nice!
