“King of the Russian Ska-Chansons” and “the bedrock in the Russian music scene” is finally coming back to Germany!
Karl Hlamkin & DZO is a bubbling world music mix that has formed since the mid-80s: From contemporary cabaret, Russian chanson, Ukrainian Kolomeika’s and Jewish klezmer dances to diverse Latino rhythms and Balkan melodies, peppered with Energetic speed polka, a neat dose of danceable jazz and shaped with the hands of the ska. Add to that an excellent cast of former musicians from Russian cult bands such as “Leningrad,” “Knife for Ms. Müller” and “Forbidden Drummers.” The raucous voice and lyrics about a love of life’s lost details make Hlamkin a distinctive explosive-colorful stage fireworks display. In 2019, the long-awaited new album “300 Chinaman” will be released, with which Hlamkin and DZO will embark on a major European tour in March-April 2019.
Karl Hlamkin – ex-citizen of Latvia, artist and missionary, mastermind of the underground festivals – founded his orchestra in 2002 and recorded his debut album provocatively titled “Hlamkin, Shut up!.” The record reached the first positions on the radio charts and received positive reviews in glossy magazines. The next albums “Davay Zabuhaem Orchestra” and “01” clearly proved that it is impossible to adequately perceive this music and define its style.
They play with Gogol Bordello in Siberia, with Zap Mama in Belgium, with Baobab Orchestra in Germany, they attend big festivals like Esperanza and Fusion, they engage in alternative cinema, they publish idiotic videos on YouTube and sometimes they wake up, To find yourself famous in one of the clubs with unscrewed light bulbs from chandeliers.
GUCK ON YOUR GOLDENE UHR!
You don’t need them anymore!
Chaos is coming your way!
P.S.: “You’re going to dance even if you’re just standing on one leg!”
