Live performance by Black Sea Hotel (L to R) Shelley Thomas, Willa Roberts and Sarah Small)
Known as Brooklyn's practitioners of "Balkan Vocal Pyrotechnics," Black Sea Hotel creates an ethereal blend of tight, sublime women's harmonies in the ancient Eastern-European tradition. "The Forest is Shaking and Swaying" is the latest from these wonderful singers, who are equally at home on club stages as they are in large concert halls worldwide. Black Sea Hotel performed live on WFMU, in advance of a couple of local shows.

Hi Irene, Sean (reply sent to you already), DCE and Common!
Present but not all here. Had little sleep and doubt I can type coherently, but will be listening even so.

I must get off the board and into a bed for a nice nappy-nap, though first lullabyed by these great sounds. Thanks, Irene! :)
I'll depart with a synch link: quelle coïncidence as this just posted at the NYer today: www.newyorker.com... [and I believe others on the subject are there as well.]

Sounding great!
Avatar 1:11pm Van in DC:

Bao Bao? Ha, the Smithsonian just had a major "culture" war between their institutions where the Panda named Bao Bao (who just turned 1 yr old) won the contest to be "the culture face" of all things Smithsonian
Avatar 1:13pm Van in DC:

Sound cutting out for anyone else or is it just me
  Swag For Life Member 1:14pm 12539:

Good sound here, beautiful in fact.
Avatar 1:15pm Van in DC:

It was probably just my network...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Mike East:

sounding great, Irene...its hard to tell if I have your show or Gary's playing...I'm going back and forth. Its a great mix!
Avatar 2:21pm Van in DC:

Wow this kind of sort of reminisces of Loreena McKinnett's Marrakesh Night Market. Not a lot but kind of sort of (to me)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Mike East:

Robyn Hitchcock is gonna be on Marc Maron's podcast on Thursday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Irene Trudel:

HI Everybody! Just getting a chance to chime in here. Thanks for the tip, Mike! Maron's brilliant, and it will be interesting to hear the interplay between him and Robyn. By the way, thanks to Jeff for taking some beautiful photos of Black Sea Hotel. (Forgot my camera today.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

By the way, Irene, around 1PM, someone mentioned a URL of a web site that had info on Black Sea Hotel or an organization they're familiar with. Do you remember what that was? If not, I can check the archive later. Thanks.

Hadn't heard that song in ages.

Read about USA in Roxon's encyclopedia but it was years until I actually heard them.

Thank you, Irene, another corker of a show and thank you to Black Sea Hotel
Avatar 3:01pm Van in DC:

Thanks Irene!
Avatar 4:21pm kat330:

Realize post-show comments lack the punch of real-time ones, but I am compelled to log on to voice my ♥ of Black Sea Hotel's in-studio appearance earlier. I did eventually drift into a restorative Katnap, but that was only after I heard all of BSH's performance. THANK YOU, Willa, Sara and Shelley, for the goosebump gorgeous harmonies, and to you as well, Ms. Trudel for bringing them to us!
