A group of Richmond, Virginia musicians performing traditional Romanian songs popularized by celebrated singer Maria Tanase. Revered in the 1930s and ’40s as that country’s version of French torch singer Edith Piaf, Tanase interpreted peasant songs from the countryside. Her work later was banned by the fascist Iron Guard for taking liberties with tradition (though some speculated it really was because of her Jewish friends). She died in 1963. There shows have been described as a “strange “Lawrence Welk Show” meets “Portlandia” vibe.” The group contains an accordion player, two fiddles, a clarinet, an acoustic guitar, a string bass and percussion, and other worldly vocals.

Da Bmore Brass Factory: This brass band takes Baltimore music and mixes it with New Orleans, and Mardi Gras elements. Rufus Roundtree and da B’more Brass Factory reimagine R&B and hip-hop tunes by adding soul, jazz, and funk details. As their Facebook page says, “this is not the traditional band, this is truly an invigorating experience.”

Cocek Brass Band: Cocek! Brass Band is the brainchild of trumpet player Sam Dechenne. The band performs original music by Dechenne based on the sounds of Eastern European brass bands. They are a 5-piece group (2 trumpets, trombone, tuba and bass drum) that rocks the house on a very regular basis. The band’s members come from internationally touring ensembles like John Brown’s Body and Itzhak Perlman and bring a blend of dance music with exciting improvisation and melodies that evoke crazy dancing, contemplative thoughts and good times.

Confident, vulnerable, and sensual, Alejandra Ribera’s new cosmopolitan folk-pop album La Boca chronicles in polyglot fashion personal journies from Paris to Malaga, from Quebec to the moon. With harp and steel guitar, her choruses are catchy and songwriting is stellar. “The three Bs are big in my life: Bjørk, Bette Midler, and Billy Connolly,” she says of her top influences. She got me with the Bette Midler. You don’t hear younger artists citing her as an influence!
