Xango Music is proud to present Imam Baildi at Balkan Trafik, Horta Hall, in Brussels, Belgium
Imam Baildi is a very popular Southeast Mediterranean dish consisting of aubergine stuffed with onion, garlic, and tomatoes simmered in olive oil. It is a similar fine blend that brothers Lysandros and Orestis Falireas and their band do - only in musical terms!
Here’s what happens in their melting pot: Bouzouki meets electro swing, Greek roots meet hip hop and mambo big band orchestration, and original Greek - Balkan brass action meets uplifting MC’s and Cuban montuno’s.
So, forget phony folklore! Imam Baildi’s sound is a unique urban blend of retro gems with new orchestration, production and remixing techniques. Nothing similar is to be found in world music, and what’s best is that this is not just home-cooking: it’s about 8 people on stage blending the intensity of Greek music with massive new sounds into a 100% danceable live act.
