Live Act Worldmusic Klezmer
Ballast - Worldmusic Klezmer Live Act in Les Ulis

Ballast Short Info

"Our music has its peculiarity in a fusion of different musical elements : melodies with klezmer's or Balkan accents brought by the clarinet sometimes powerful, sometimes tender or ironical, oscillating from a klezmer sound exuberant and full of banter to a more classic and refined timbre, supported by an often tense harmonization, and by a duo bass-drum more inspired by rock, pop and ska's rythmic.
Far divisions, borders or labels, we draw at will in different traditions without limiting us to find another form of musical expression that combines the expressive power of East European traditional music and rock energy. "
