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.
