Come celebrate the beginning of Summer! Join us in our backyard for food, drinks and live contemporary Turkish folk music by Dolunay. Friends of friends welcome!
Party starts at 4pm. Music at 6pm.
We will have drinks and treats on theme, but please BYOB! We’ll fire up the grill as well, so plan what to bring accordingly.
Dolunay is kindly donating their time and talent for our delight. Donations are appreciated, but we’re not charging a cover.
More about the band: The Brooklyn, NY, based trio Dolunay (Turkish for “full moon”) draws upon the songs from the Turkish people living across Rumeli, the former region of the Ottoman Balkans. Dolunay’s intimate sound, sparse in loudness and textured with the dissonance of eastern blues, gives way to a sound at once earthy and celestial, the size of which defies that of the small makeup of the band. Inspired to engage with the unique repertoire of lesser-known songs and empowered with a knack to enrich the uncovered sounds with a personal note, Dolunay creates the opportunity to breathe new life into melodies of a region culturally diverse and historically rich. www.facebook.com/DolunayNYC
