Tantz

2230 Friday

Main Stage

With awesome musical chops, an energy not seen since punk rock’s halcyon days and ability to turn a gentle world music festival crowd into a heaving, pogoing mosh-pit, there’s something special about Tantz!

Fusing klezmer, gypsy jazz, Balkan music Tantz bring a roaring blend of the traditional and the new, rocking every gig like it’s their last one. Bottle of rum onstage, “1-2-3-4, let’s go” count and they’re off. Prepare for a pure musical maelstrom of thumping bass lines, frenetic violin fiddling, in-yer-face drums and percussion, ska-punk chopped guitar and stratospheric soaring clarinet solos played so fast Charlie Parker would be proud of them.
