The DakhaBrakha Select Session

This will be a fun Select Session as there is a pent up demand to hear this music on a sunny day from the main stage. DakhaBrakha and all in attendance a few years back were drenched the last time that this band appeared in Madison. We had an amazing 30-minute show in our yellow-striped beer tent but that was all the material that the band from Ukraine could play without monitors.

To complement DB we have chosen the perfect opener. Yid Vicious with a slew of Eastern European melodies will get us in just the right mood. 
Keep an eye out for raffle ticket sellers as the winning tickets will be pulled the next night.

This night benefits the fine educational skills nurtured by The Omega School.

The Globetrotter Session

The Globetrotter Session will treat our audience to three excellent bands. They will certainly test our dance skills.

Charanga (Agozá) is a steamy Cuban originated music and features violins and flutes. Tribu Baharu plays Champeta which is music from islands of Colombia and northern Colombia with strong African influences. While Red Baraat lays claim to the hottest dance repertoire in Brooklyn anchored by the infectious Indian Bhangra beat.

Also our Sessions Raffle (which boasts $6,000 in prizes) winners will be drawn on this evening at 8:15. So get to the park early to avoid the sales rush.
