Join the party and get up and dance with us on September 21st at DROM NYC!

dance performances by Dalia Carella, Irina Akulenko, Cesar Madera, Layla Isis and Mariyah!

About the band:

Souren Baronian and Taksim come to the Brooklyn Oryantal Parti!

Fusing traditional instrumentation with Middle Easterm rhythms, a jazz vocabulary and bebop sensibilities, Taksim is a hybrid of Baronian's ethnic Armenian heritage and jazz idioms of his New York upbringing. The sound of his band is truly unique, applying a jazz vocabulary and the bebop sensibility of Charlie Parker and Lester Young to Middle Eastern rhythms on traditional instruments such as the oud, kaval, dubek, G-clarinet and dumbek. Taksim has performed in most of the city's major jazz clubs, have toured Europe extensively, and appeared at the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Jazz Festival. 

Featuring Souren (clarinet), Robert Boghosian (oud), Mal Stein (percussion).
