BRAND LIBRARY | Plaza Series | The Swing Riots Quirktette!

Friday | JULY 28, 2017 | 7:00 PM

Brand Library Plaza Series

The Swing Riots Quirktette!

The Swing Riots Quirktette perform a mix of early, traditional string-based jazz, as well as swinging eastern European traditional dance melodies. Included on our first cd are “Tears”; Django Reinhardt’s adaptation of the Sinti Rom folksong “Muri Waschella”; a Surf Medley a la Turque ending with Ottoman composer Tanburi Cemel Bey’s “Nikriz Syrto”; the perennial Rom dance hit “Opa Cupa”; assorted Romanian & Klezmer dance tunes; and a handful of New Orleans Créole Traditional Jazz numbers thrown in for good measure.

Admission is free.  The Brand Library Plaza Series is supported by the City of Glendale and the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission, with funding from the Urban Art Program and the Brand Associates.
