11th Annual NY Gypsy Festival presents 

Defying boundaries between world, folk, and jazz, the evolving collective of TriBeCastan is an exuberant collaboration by some of New York’s finest jazz and world musicians. Band members have worked with such artists as Ornette Coleman, Patti Smith, Aretha Franklin, John McLaughlin, James Brown, Santana, Sting and Taj Mahal, to name a few – but together, as TriBeCaStan, they take music to completely new zones. TriBeCaStan’s fifth studio album ­­ GODDESS POLKA DOTTESS – serves up a feast of sonic flavors throughout its 14 tracks. Diverse elements of world music abound, with myriad styles and sounds skillfully woven together with great innovation. The band hops gleefully from India to Ethiopia, to Jamaica and Eastern Europe and back to New York with remarkable ease and characteristically sly wit.

Bluegrass meets circus music and exotic desert vibes, and dervish dance meets ska, and such influences as 1920s­style swing, Looney Tunes cartoon music, ‘70s Quincy Jones, and East African dance music are evoked in the band’s eclectic sound. GODDESS POLKA DOTTESS was produced by TriBeCaStan co­founders John Kruth and Jeff Greene, and recorded at Park West Studio in Brooklyn NY.
