NY Gypsy Fest 2013: Escarioka & Taluna (Italy)


Escarioka is a multicultural collective started in 2002 in Elizabeth, NJ. The band has crafted an explosive, pan-Latin, psychotropical sound drawing on cumbia, ska, punk, and salsa influences, through lengthy trial and terror on dance floors across NYC. Featuring a relentless rhythm section, punching horns, and powerful, socially conscious lyrics, Escarioka promises a night of joyful mayhem, raucous energy, and mucho sabor that keeps the people moving from start to finish.





There is a thread stretching from Dubrovnik to Vukovar, which passes through Belgrade and descends to lick Tirana and Athens. A thread that runs under the sea and touches Brindisi and Sevilla, which crosses the ocean up to caress the coasts of Argentina and Chile A thread moves from the strings of guitars and violins, bouncing off the skins of the drums and that bends in the keys of the accordion. Gaia Mobilij is center stage with his accordion, the old "lira Calabrese" and her warm and evocative voice, the violin of Marco Ghezzo exudes elegant notes that make the audience dream and dance, Luca Russo with his classical guitar accompanies every different style, launching riffs worthy of the best jazz soloist, finally the tambourine of eclectic Giuseppe Leone emanates the vibrant pulse of the group, with continuous reminder of the taranta of Salento. The real strength of the group are the autographs pieces, all songs from their album "Exper" are written by them individually and arranged together, in a collection which brings together all genres and styles referring to Taluna: ethnic music (Rom, Balkan ), popular music (Occitan), the "pizzica" of Salento, Latin and Jazz."(R.Natalini).
