Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Luminescent Orchestrii

Neptune's Daughter

2009-03-16

Neptune's Daughter, by NYC's Luminescent Orchestrii, is an intriguing blend of traditional Romanian Gypsy folk songs, punk rock rhythm, bluesy vocals, and jazz improvisation. The Orchestrii, or small ensemble with orchestral intentions, is made up of a fiddler and guitarist from the NYC Theatre underground, a free-jazz bassist, and an old-time fiddler. The group toured extensively in Europe for a time, gaining much. Their music is not something you would expect to hear in modern America, but certainly welcome nonetheless. – Matt Kwiek
