Cincinnati, OH – Keshvar Project is hosting New York based band, Raquy and the Cavemen this Saturday, November 20th, 2010 at the College Hill Dance Hall, 1805 Larch Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45224
Keshvar Project just released their first studio album, a tasty sampling of world gypsy fusion. Inspired and written for their five tribal belly dancers, the album is primarily grounded in hip shakin’ Middle Eastern rhythms. You’ll find choreographies and synchronized dance to Spanish, Moroccan, and Eastern European spiced offerings in a very delicious mix. Keshvar Project has a continuing presence on the alternative world music scene, luring other quality musicians to the ever growing Cincinnati music scene.
The band is melodically driven by Gregory Morris (of Shiny Old Soul/Marmalade Brigade) playing violin, guitar, & cornet, Mark Stucker on flute and clarinet and Michael McIntire on guitar/vocals (Marmalade Brigade/Sangodango). The band is rhythmically led by the doumbek/vocals of Dan Baechle and the bass guitar of Will Menton. There’s no scarcity of song writers in Keshvar Project; they have four on this album, contributing to the fresh and unique feel of each song.
The band and dancers will be hosting an evening with Raquy and the Cavemen. This duo of virtuoso drummers/multi- instrumentalists bring back hard rock energy to mystical rhythms of the Middle East. Raquy Danziger and Liron Peled switch between energetic drumming compositions and intoxicating melodic pieces. Utilizing a variety of unusual instruments, including the Kemenche (an ancestor of the violin), Dumset (middle eastern drum set) and Mongolian throat singing, Raquy and the Cavemen leave the audience uplifted, transformed and full of joy.
Keshvar Project’s show with Brooklyn’s Raquy and the Cavemen is November 20th at the College Hill Dance Hall Keshvar Project will be debuting three new dance and music pieces in their opening set.
