Bar Redux Presents Blato Zlato/ Stary Olsa
Blato Zlato (“Swamp Gold” in Bulgarian) is a New Orleans-based Balkan band featuring dreamy three-part vocal harmonies and hard-hitting instrumentals. The band performs traditional folk and composed music from the Balkans and Eastern Europe, with a particular focus on dark, languid arrangements and improvisational continuous transitions. Their debut album, Swamp Gold, was released in January 2017.
STARY OLSA is a medieval Belarusian music band. It was founded in 1999 by its present leader Zmicier Sasnoŭski and now consists of six musicians. It takes its name from a brook in the west part of Mahilioŭ Region (Belarus).
The band's repertoire includes Belarusian folk balladry and martial songs, Belarusian national dances, works of Belarusian Renaissance composers, compositions from Belarusian aulic music collections (e.g. Polack Notebook, Vilnia Notebook), Belarusian canticles of the 16th — early 17th centuries, as well as European popular melodies of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
