Celebrating its second decade of blasting Russian, Balkan, Romanian and Multi-Ethnic music to New York City, Romashka is back at DROM after a long hiatus. Come drink, come dance, come fall in love again and again - Sunday, July 30th at DROM. 7:30 doors / 8 pm show. $15 tix in advance, $25 at the door
Like a shot of honey-pepper vodka, Romashka sweetens your lips, hits you heavy in the gut, and induces vertiginous euphoria. Listening to this "lethal dose of gypsy firewater" (...DJ Joro-Boro), the brassy Balkan beats make you pound your feet, sexy string and accordion syncopations make your hips shake and the heart-twisting Russian tangos and tales of lost love make your spirit sigh and cry. Lithuanian-born singer Inna Barmash fronts a band of multifaceted American musicians, who bring years of playing poly-groove, loco-improv, multi-ethno music to the Romashka music party on stage.
