Description

The Idea of BBB is a natural reaction of musicians who are accomplished with not only tools and disciplines, but also DJing and extreme instrumentalism. All that topped with an intense lifetime of research into their own non-Western roots as well as other cultures. In collaborations with artists from Bulgaria, Morocco, Spain, Israel, Iran and through events synchronized with video art and dancers appearing from different places in the space, BBB has created a magical show. ..a semi-circus event.

"a magnificent mash-up melding music from every conceivable corner of the globe and its history. French heavy-metal samples, Arabic lyrics, Bulgarian female vocals, electronic beats, kitchen utensils, even a language made up just for one song -- instead of gazing into the navels of other cultures, these melanges pull the whole weight of the world forward, always forward." -Chicago Sun Times
