Global Mashup: Western Swing Meets Balkan Brass
Starting with dance lessons, a set by each band, and then a jam session between the two, we're mashing up two cultures on one stage with an open dance floor! The Brain Cloud—whose sextet brings Western swing's ragtime, bluegrass, Delta blues, and cowboy ditties—mashes with Romashka's Russian, Balkan, Romanian, and Gypsy vibes.
