This year’s SXSW was mired in tragedy and abject corporatism. But Evergreene’s own TriBeCaStan had one of the festival’s finest moments, according to The Wall Street Journal:
“For dedicated fans of rock and pop, SXSW ’14 was rescued by transcendent moments provided by musicians applying their talents … Saturday night, in a program at Russian House that included bands from Argentina, Canada, Israel and the Netherlands, TriBeCaStan, a group of downtown New York musicians, paid tribute to the late jazz trumpeter Don Cherry with a West African-influenced number that featured the hulusi, a Chinese flute. These performances relieved, at least temporarily, the unavoidable conclusion that most musicians might have invested their time more fruitfully in a place where music was the primary focus of attention.”
Check out a video of “One Day His Axe Fell Into Honey” from the band’s Russian House performance in Austin, below.
Hey friends! Evergreene Music is pleased to announce that its flagship artist, TriBeCaStan, will be playing an official showcase at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. Thanks to our friends at Rock Paper Scissors PR, our tribe of rabble rousers will kickoff The Untangled Diasporas lineup at Russian House. The whole evening is dedicated to fantastic world music from far and wide, and will definitely be a highlight of South By’s closing evening. Will you be at SXSW?

Fourth Album Due October 1st from Collective Described by The Village Voice as “Defined by New York Cool, Explorer Energy, and Outer Space Vibes”
As radically multicultural and poly-stylistic as any artists working today, TriBeCaStan is one of contemporary music’s most vibrantly eclectic ensembles, and one that defies standard genre categorizations. The New York-based group of ace instrumentalists from varied musical backgrounds uses diverse instruments from around the globe to create a richly exotic palette of sonic colors. Their fourth studio album, NEW SONGS FROM THE OLD COUNTRY, is out now on Manhattan-based Evergreene Music (October 1, 2013).
Alright everyone, this might just be TriBeCaStan‘s biggest show of the year! Come and celebrate the release of their brand new album, New Songs from the Old Country, at DROM’s New York Gypsy Festival on Friday, September 27, 2013. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show starts at 7:15pm sharp. DROM is located at 85 Ave A (b/w 5th & 6th) and tickets are only $10 online ($15 at the door) and can be purchased RIGHT HERE
