A few weeks ago the 3 amigos — Raphlex, Aisle Violator & Mishto of course — teamed up for one hell of a party on the main floor of Mehanata. Dancing on chairs, folk-tastic rug cutting, and many rakia shots ensued. If you missed it, you can relive it with these photos.
Mister Moombah joined us for burdel dali this week, straight from Colombia via Llorona records! We had a killer set with Mister Moombah, Raphlex, and DJ Mishto side by side in front of a raging dance floor until morning…
And join us tonight for RAPHLEX IN THE ICE CAGE!
Mehanata, 113 Ludlow, LES NYC
Official Cast Party for “Come Undone”, the experimental belly dance theatrical production of our beloved KANDAKE DANCE…
“Who dances through your mind when you hear the words “belly dance?” Is it a majestic, glittering goddess, a mischievous gypsy, a veiled seductress? What about an alcoholic, single mother? A modern-day minstrel? An undead, lesbian banker?
COME UNDONE confronts modern women’s issues with an exaggerated, absurdist, even supernatural slant using a myriad of artistic disciplines such as martial arts, video projection, body painting, LED light work and more. ”

We [@ Burdel Dali] always pay close attention to what surrounds us in a daily basis and what is going on in our young always changing musical universe.
The Balkan Hotsteppers represent what every dj desires… knowledge, skill and a tireless obsession for making things smooth and more festive than they already are.
from their profile:
Formed back in 2006 by Belgian DJ’s Sam Rabam and Typsy Gypsy, the infamous Balkan Hotsteppers released trendsetting mixtapes on the internet. Combining modern beats with classical Balkan, gypsy and klezmer melodies and mashing it up with hip-hop, they soon became a standard in the evergrowing European BalkanBeats scene.
Four years later they have played all over Europe: Belgium, France, Holland, Ireland, UK, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Spain, Portugal. Their unique blend will take you on a eclectic trip to the balkans and beyond. Balkan Mashups, Klezmer Beats, Gypsy Punk, Russian Ska, Romano Hip Hop, Yugoslavian Brass Bangers,…!
We at Burdel Dali salute you Balkan Hotsteppers! You have a house and a podium in New York city.

We love when people honor our requirement for festive dress code. We used to threaten in our weekly invites that Mishka would throw you down the stairs if you didn’t heed the festive and/or soviet costume guidelines, but then when she actually tried to throw someone down the stairs, we had to take it less seriously.
But you guys know what’s up.
Also, Happy Birthday Cat!
