Raya Brass Band & Sekanjabin

- Raya Brass Band -

Since 2008 Raya Brass Band has thrilled audiences with its energetic brand of soul shaking, border defying dance music. Given the way these five musicians electrify clubs, festivals, underground parties, and even subway cars with their riotous performances, it’s no wonder that they’re often mistaken for a band twice the size. The members of the band all bring their unique voices to the group, creating a sound informed as much by their love for the fierce and seductive music of the Balkans as it is by New Orleans brass bands, punk rock, out jazz, and a host of other international sounds. When they put it all together, this hard working band gets straight to the point, dancing, sweating, and shouting alongside its audience.


- Sekanjabin -

Sekanjabin is an 11+ piece international ensemble, infusing traditional Turkish music with various rhythms and styles from around the world, and re-imagining it with not-so-traditional instrumentation.  From salsa and flamenco to reggae to calypso, Sekanjabin breathes new life into centuries old folk music.  The group’s ever-changing cast of musicians boasts members from the US, Turkey, and Peru.  The combination has left the band with an eclectic and authentic mix of world influences.  Frontwoman Gulin Ciloglu spends most of her time in Istanbul, Turkey, but whenever she returns to the States, Sekanjabin assembles!  The result is a unique, high-energy live show that spills over from the stage to the dance floor – a wild and unusual flavor, instantly refreshing and inspirational!
