Sensual Saturday with Black Ox Orkestar

Now for some Saturday R & R with Black Ox Orkestar.  Never know what you might discover when you ask a friend what music they enjoy. Thanks to Berit for sharing.   Don’t know about the rest of you but I’m always game for exploring music mines. Sometimes nothing mixes at all. Other times there are ear gems galore.  Music mines vary from person to person/mind to mind. Once you’ve left behind all the usual beaten tracks there’s no end to ear engagements.  Perhaps Black Ox Orkestar can add some sensuality to your Saturday. Go to another place with a sound track.

Musical Artists: Thierry Amar, Scott Gilmore Levine, Gabe Levine, Jessica Moss.

~~~Black Ox Orkestar began in the summer of 2000, the project of four Montreal musicians exploring their common Jewish heritage for sounds that could speak to them today. Listening to pre-war recordings of Jewish and non-Jewish music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, they wanted to capture the rawness and emotional intensity they heard there. They also threw their own musical histories into the mix, their years of playing out-jazz, punk rock, or weird folk, creating not so much a fusion of old and new as a way to tear the old sounds from the past and make them resonate in the present. The band tried to be true to the strangeness and beauty of these archaic songs, translating them into new forms, and writing new material that continued an imaginary tradition still humming in their ears. They played their final show in 2005  ~~~

    I’m always a little sad when I pick up a new artist and find out they broke up or stopped performing years earlier. Examples include The Dream Syndicate, Darling Violetta, and Alisha’s Attic. (On the other hand, it does mean I can acquire their complete catalogs and call it finished!)

      OOO Dennis, thanks for sharing a few selections. Yep, it’s sort of sad and yet–at least they created music we enjoy.
