Choban Elektrik

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Vintage-keyboard-driven Balkan-inspired instrumental power trio Choban Elektrik hits the Studio B radio stage playing tunes from its new self-titled debut cd and lots more.

The combo, whose name means "the Electric Shepherds", hopes the positive vibes of our magical studio will grant them the good luck they'll need for their next club gig - Friday the 13th at Freddy's in Brooklyn's South Slope.

Greetings Bas!

Hi Rob/listeners. Does anyone know anything about the Les Escales festival in St. Nazaire, France, on August 3rd and 4th? I am going to be in the area then and was wondering if it would be worth checking out? I know The Ex/Getachew Merkuria played there a few years ago, but I don't really recognize most of the artists in this year's lineup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/30/12 6:25pm Your DJ:

Tony, there's definitely good stuff, certainly Poly-Rythmo is a favorite (they will be in NY / North America this summer too) but others too. Email me (robw AT wfmu DOT org) and I can give you an appraisal of the lineup. But if I was there, I would go - !
  Sat. 6/30/12 6:28pm Mark in DC:

Thanks for Cankisou, never heard them. I've played this three times in a row, astounding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/30/12 6:31pm Your DJ:

Thanks Mark. Yes, very interesting group (but haven't toured or gotten much play in North America as far as I know. They're part of the Indies label posse from Czech Republic which is quite varied - rock, world, folk, other stuff too. Their page over there is
  Sat. 6/30/12 6:33pm Tony:

Thanks a lot Rob. Yeah, Poly-Rythmo were the group that sounded the most interesting to me. Glad to hear you approve!
  Sat. 6/30/12 7:12pm the glowing one:

instant goosebumps off Steve's Gaida
  Sat. 6/30/12 7:17pm the glowing one:

reminded me in parts of Terry Riley (beginning) and Centipede (the slow mid section)

Thanks tgo, I'm sure the band will appreciate your comments!
  Sat. 6/30/12 7:52pm Bas, NL:

He, he.. and meanwhile i'm sitting here fixing a vintage keyboard: How better then with those great sound by Choban Elektrik! Great tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/30/12 7:57pm Your DJ:

A curious coincidence indeed Bas. Glad you enjoyed Choban Elektrik!
  Sat. 6/30/12 8:21pm Fittipaldi:

A Wurlitzer? Oberheim?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/30/12 8:22pm Your DJ:

Fender before (Jordan Shapiro, the keyboardist for Choban Elektrik also plays a Hammond), musical bow now...
  Sat. 6/30/12 8:58pm Bas, NL:

Thanks for the excellent three hours again Rob!
