Gorgeous old-world cabaret collides with modernity in this unique Brooklyn-based ensemble. Barbez wrings elements of Eastern European folksong, post-war classical, and experimental rock into an otherworldly soundscape. With: Dan Kaufman, guitar; Danny Tunick, vibes, marimba; Peter Hess, clarinets, percussion; Lily Henley, violin; Peter Lettre, bass; John Bollinger, drums.'

"Our new record, 'Bella Ciao,' an homage to the musical legacy of the Roman Jews and the Italian Resistance during the Second World War is now out on John Zorn's label Tzadik!" 

“The music of Barbez conjures an imaginary place full of narrow, crooked streets that are paved with ancient, damp cobblestones. The Brooklyn-based ensemble looks to Eastern Europe for inspiration and its expansive rock draws on such composers as Brecht, Schnittke, and Satie. But Barbez is firmly lodged in the present. Its original compositions capture the angst, joy, and strangeness of life in the twenty-first century.” – The New Yorker
