To A Great Dance Event
With Resident DJ from the Bulgarian Bar JORO BORO
Spinning EthnoMesh: Arab, Balkan, Hip Hop, Raggaeton, and other great stuff
Joro-Boro was born in Bulgaria. In New York City he became the resident DJ at Mehanata Bulgarian Bar and was instrumental in creating its underground legendary status. His music is best described as EthnoMesh - a textured knot-work of unlikely styles like gypsy dance hall, Balkan gitano brass, Arab turbo dub, resistance ska, grind bhangra, outer latino, favela freak funk. It's a music of "movement, progressive voice, and diversity. The fast-forward multifarious collective from the 'Eastern Bloc' and beyond, spearheaded by Joro-Boro and Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello, pluralistically exhale out of a trans-cultural osmosis of East meets West, romantically fusing the abundant expressions of a relevant past into a shifting matrix of the now-sound of today's wayward cultural bents. That is, an unorthodox real-deal identity stamp to destroy and forge through all barriers that are political, social, and musical." (Other Music) Joro-Boro has hosted the premiere parties for Divan (Palinka Pictures) and Holy Land (Cavu Pictures), co-produced the 'New York Gypsy-Mania' compilation CD and the New York Gypsy Festival and recently became subject of the documentary 'Body Without Organs'.
