Ismail Lumanovski and Inspector Gadje Balkan Brass
7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Ismail Lumanovski (mastermind of New York Gypsy All-Stars) and Inspector Gadje released their debut album Live At Kafana Balkan in March 2017. There’s been a buzz from the start for this pairing, which consistently draws sold out crowds propelled by high energy, soaring, funky, dirty, and ecstatic brass. The New York Times called Lumanovski a “brilliant, fearless young clarinetist, “ and the San Francisco Chronicle calls Gadje “an instant party atmosphere,” so you can imagine the virtuosity and sway this dynamic project inspires. While Lumanovski and Inspector Gadje each stand tall as performers in their own right, and together, they have a certain synergy and magic that take their music to new heights. Tight and adventurous arrangements, grooves that get under the skin and into the feet, and epic solos come together for music that touches the heart, stirs the soul, and moves the body.
