Sharq Attack:

SHARQ ATTACK: a Brooklyn based instrumental ensemble playing some original music composed by mastermind oudist Brian Prunka, as well as traditional favorites from the Middle East. 

Marandi Hostetter, 5 string violin
Brian Prunka, oud
John Murchison, double bass
Philip Mayer, percussion
Simon Moushabeck, percussion

Dolunay :
With a musical vision that is at once ethereal and grounded, Dolunay flirts with the soundscape of the ancient Ottomans, tracing its migration through Balkan villages, coaxing it across seas and oceans, and grafting it onto a Brooklyn-based backdrop. The trio infuses classic and contemporary traditions with an urban grit that can only be found in New York City’s confluence of musical and cultural forces. With an array of original compositions offered alongside renditions of Turkish and Rumeli standards, the music of Dolunay (Turkish for “full moon”) offers listeners an escape from the press of city life. By the light of the moon, bits of the Rumeli soul mingle with the diverse musical and linguistic influences of members Eylem Basaldi, Adam Good, and Jenny Luna to create a sound world that is uniquely New York.

Jenny Luna, vocals & percussion
Adam Good, oud
Eylem Basaldi, violin
