New York: EZRAKH // Bell’s Roar // A. Sarr // Tolliver

May 04, 2016 at CAKE SHOP NYC in New York.


Hit the Lower East Side’s vibiest confectionery-churning club for a night of r&b, house, soul and synthpop. Featuring performances from:


Founding member of the THREAD collective and longtime player in the Jersey music scene, EZRAKH is a DJ, producer and musician with styles ranging from the deepest to the turnt-est.

Bell’s Roar

Bell’s Roar began with just a guitar and a voice. Over the years Sean Desiree has transformed her solo project by fully taking advantage of her skills as a drummer, bassists and ultimately a producer. Her approach to music is DIY not because of its ecstatic, but because it’s how she keeps her voice ever-present. The music is rooted in a melodic feel, but the beats transform it into energetic and dynamic electronic compositions.

Her debut EP Bells Roar is a forceful and sensitive collection of six beautiful and personal songs. Elements of loopy post-rock guitars, hip hop beats, and R and B vocals combine with an ease and minutia equity suited for the dance floor, living room, or headphones. If the talent Sean Desiree shows on this debut is any indication of what is to come we will be hearing a lot from her. The vocals, guitar layering and synth-driven beats are best described as synth-pop/post-rock/soul. The album also features Kiran Gandhi, MIA’s drummer for her Matangi tour.

A. Sarr


Tolliver is a soul singer born and raised in the Midwest, cornfed and churchified. He’s spent years playing in Stax-inspired boozy bar bands, including Black Diet, an act that won best new bands honors from a slew of Minneapolis publications and filmed a nationally syndicated PBS special at the end of 2014.

Elephant and Castle produced and co-wrote Tolliver’s latest EP, Rave Deep. He’s signed to Plug Research, and has worked with Tune-Yards, dd_elle, Naytronix, and a host of other genre-bending, pocket-stretching r&b influenced acts.

Brooklyn: Trance Music of Morocco: Club d’Elf feat. Brahim Fribgane at Roulette, Brooklyn, NY

April 29, 2016 at Roulette in Brooklyn.


Robert Browning Associates presents the Opening Concert of A World in Trance Festival– 2nd Edition
CLUB D’ELF featuring BRAHIM FRIBGANE: Trance Music of Morocco
$25/ students & seniors $21.
Brahim Fribgane – oud, percussion, voice; Van Martin – guitar; Paul Schultheis – Moog, Rhodes & melodica; Mister Rourke – turntables; Mike Rivard – bass & sintir; Dean Johnston – drums, w/ guest Ned Rothenberg (reeds).

The trance-inducing music of North Africa, most notably Gnawa and Berber music from Morocco, is a fundamental component sound of Club d’Elf, adding spice to the tagine of jazz, electronica, hip hop and other flavors which the band incorporates. The acclaimed Boston-based collective is centered around Mike Rivard, one of Boston’s most in-demand bass players, and features Casablanca-born Brahim Fribgane, who brings to his music the rich and varied musical styles he grew up with – North African, Gnawa, Berber, Arabic and Andalusian music. This performance showcases Fribgane’s mesmerizing oud stylings and Rivard’s commanding playing of the Moroccan sintir, a three-stringed bass lute used by the Gnawa people of Morocco, a mystical Sufi brotherhood descended from sub-Saharan slaves brought to Morocco over 500 years ago.

“The roaring avant-funk of electric-era Miles (and) the legato drift of the Grateful Dead…manic Berber bop, hypnotic Moroccan gnawa and blissful electronica are usually present in the mix as well. Heady music that doesn’t neglect the tail.” – Time Out New York

With over 60 episodes, she gave a voice to countless undiscovered talent throughout the United States, while showing us her growth as a story teller, filmmaker and human being.

In summer 2013, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Upon countless surgeries, chemotherapy and all other failed attempts to contain the cancer, she still continues to fight for her life. Currently hospitalized, we are hopeful that the alternative medication, in which we are raising funds for, will increase her chances of survival, and return her back to health.

Brooklyn: Marie Incontera – Eco-Music Big Band Fred Ho / Cal Massey Album Release

June 28, 2016 at Roulette in Brooklyn.


The Eco-Music Big Band is proud to present the release of our second album, REBEL SPIRITS. REBEL SPIRITS is a posthumous reimagining of the music of three of the most underrated and influential jazz composers of the 20th century: the band’s founder, Fred Ho; late composer/trumpeter and influence to John Coltrane, Cal Massey; and multigenre composer/arranger Romulus Franceschini.

The Eco-Music Big Band’s second album, REBEL SPIRITS creates a living practice of the music of the deceased; rather than preserving the music of these late composers, this album imagines their voices in the present world. As the Eco-Music Big Band is committed to fusing genres, creating new sounds, and exploring the outer limits of what is possible with a big band, REBEL SPIRITS creates a new sonic world for composer Cal Massey and arranger Romulus Franceschini’s magnum opus, The Black Liberation Movement Suite, and for Fred Ho’s final and unreleased works, Grace of the Guerrilla, My Love, and Soul Science Stomp. The Eco-Music Big Band is committed to commissioning new works for big band that propel a new jazz tradition through the 21st century; REBEL SPIRITS exhibits a deep root in the tradition of avant-garde jazz in addition to our vision for the future. This album is an aural timeline that includes classic straight-ahead jazz, 1970s funk-fusion, heavy metal, extended technique virtuosity, old-school hip hop rhythms, East Asian tonalities, and odd-meter blues grooves. This performance will also feature the world premiere of a new work by composer Jessica DiMari, entitled American Rose.
