The Lost Tribe in Concert at Swallow Hill


We've been hard at work recording a new album, KLEZMER WITHOUT BORDERS -- a collection of songs that draw parallels between our present-day political and social turmoil and the tumultuous period in Europe between World Wars I and II. We rework old klezmer tunes (and a Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill song) and weave them with original songs that use funk, reggae, and middle eastern grooves and rap-inflected lyrics. We'll be playing a bunch of these new songs as well as some of our older faves.  

Tickets are $16 advance, $18 day of show; call Swallow Hill Music at 303-777-1003 or buy online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hal-aqua-and-the-lost-tribe-tickets-52616071085
