Radically multicultural and poly-stylistic to the marrow, TriBeCaStan are one of contemporary music's most musically diverse bands. The Washington Post hails them as "an international jazz and folk festival unto themselves, fusing Balkan, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin American, and African musical elements to bold and dazzling effect." While nailing down the multifarious culture of TriBeCaStan might be challenging (especially since the band purposefully aims to tear down the boundaries between world, folk, and jazz), the final package is the result of a virtuosic and exuberant collaboration between some of New York's finest jazz and world musicians-many of whom have played and collaborated with legendary innovators, such as Ornette Coleman, Patti Smith, John Corigliano, James Brown, and Taj Mahal. "Our music," says Jeff Greene, "is ultimately about the cross-fertilization of musical idioms. Between our travels and life in New York City, we get to witness, first-hand, all the wonderful ways in which the world's cultures combine to create new musical forms and expressions. To us, there couldn't be anything more inspiring."
