The Ebony Hillbillies

As one of the last black string bands in the U.S.—currently based in the concrete hills of NYC—the Hillbillies keep an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that many forget was a key element in the genesis of all the music we cherish as uniquely American—jazz, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, rock and roll and country.

But you’ll stay for all the other ingredients in their mélange: fiddles and guitars, bouncy banjo-ukes, weepy country pedal steel, rock-and-roll electric guitar, jug-band kazoo and assorted percussion” —Huffington Post.

Bombay Rickey

With their deliciously quirky blend of cowboy music, exotic dance rhythms, coloratura soprano, surf guitar, Indian, Latin, funk, and rock, Bombay Rickey might be the soundtrack to a Bollywood noir film from the 1960s, or perhaps to a spaghetti western that never existed.

Maarja Nuut

An enchanting blend of traditional Estonian storytelling, folk music, and experimental electronic soundscapes.
