Proclaimed "one of the most thrilling young acts on the planet" by LA Weekly, the Los Angeles based quartet Fishtank Ensemble play fast paced Gypsy music that'll get a crowd moving on even a Sunday evening. On "Fraima," Djordje Stijepovic slaps his standup bass like its a percussion instrument, while Fabrice's Martinez's accomplished violin playing races through the song like a hyperactive kid in a toy store. Though you probably won't understand the lyrics—which are usually in Romanian, French or Japanese instead of English—the Fishtank Ensemble plays music that is sure to move you. [ST]
