Who Cinder Conk When Saturday, September 10, 2011 7:30pm – All Ages Where Frontier Cafe (map) 14 Maine St. Mill 3 Fort Andross Brunswick, ME, USA 04011 Other InfoCinder Conk plays music drawn from the Black Sea – the wellspring of Europeâ€™s deepest and most diverse musical traditions. It is the sound of celebration and lament of those who have lived on its coast over thousands of years – Roma, Jews, peasants, and nationalists.
Cinder Conk mixes frenzied accordion riffs, sometimes adding violin, and warm double bass counterpoint with a classic bardic lyricism that invites and transcends.
“Great Romanian singing! You really sounded drunk!” – a native speaking listener’s response to a Romanian drinking song
â€œI closed my eyes and heard the bass drum, the high hat, and the trombone and when I opened my eyes, I thought …. shit.â€
– American guy
â€œI canâ€™t believe you speak English.â€
– American woman
â€œYou guys are really good.â€
-Peter Stan, Slavic Soul Party
