Central Park Summer Stage hosted the Black Sea Roma Fest yesterday and we were lucky enough to witness the incredible Mahala Rai Banda (Raphlex even snuck on stage), as well as our Finnish homegirls The Wonderlust DJs, and Disko Balkan (Blacky & Gadjo) in addition to the entire Mehanata crew.

From there we went to the after party at Mehanata, featuring our homeboy Chico Selekta and our favorite belly dance troupe, Bastet. Disko Balkan and Wonderlust also DJ’d.

Thanks to all who came out to the after party… now that our international dj comrades have landed, things are about to get crazy!!

Swan-diving into the shot tray…

Photos from the crazy night we had this past Thursday – huge thanks to Cumbiagra for coming by at the last second and turning it out – we had the chance to see them live at Royale in Park Slope Wednesday night and had a feeling they’d bring the party – fo sho.

Escarioka returns next week for our Colombian independence day parteeeeeeeeee….!!!

We caught wind of Mahalarai Banda on Summer Stage this September during the Black Sea Roma fest – also featuring our man Yuri Yunakov, Selim Sesler, and Técs & Oumli. September 26th – save the date cause we’ll definitely be there.
