An infectious infusion of Eastern melodies. With sultry London beats, Forty Thieves Orkestar create a unique sound both on record and at their vibrant gigs. Their influences range from Balkan Gypsy music, Klezmer, and belly dancing music, to hip hop, King Tubby style reggae and abstract filmic soundscapes. Brass, clarinet, violins, accordion, oud and percussion interweave with earthy samples, crisp beats, evocative atmospherics, and studio trickery. This track is from the Last Band Standing album, released in 2011.
