THE ALAEV FAMILY BUCHARIAN GROOVE
The Alaev family are one of the most energetic musical outfits around, a virtual percussion-plus-much-more extravaganza. As my auntie of 87 put it after sitting at the front row during their show: "Never in my life have I seen musicians play with so much joy and enthusiasm"
Yvonne Kahan -OLAMALE, booking agent and producer, has initiated their new project, making the perfect match between the family and talented musical producer Tamir Muskat ( Balkan Beat Box), who added minor touches to traditional songs from Tajikistan (Central Asia), transforming them into world beat hits.
This family of great musicians is full of members who have been brought up on the stage basically from the moment they have been weaned from diapers. On stage, you will see three generations playing together, with the precision, coordination and joy that can only come from the centrality of music in their individual and familial lives. The show fits all venues: outdoor, indoor, club, theatre and special events.
This project will include a documentary film about the Alaev family which is currently in the works.
2012 concert schedule included WOMAD UK, Paleo Festival, Pohoda Festival, Roskilde Festival ,Krakow Jewish Culture festival, Globaltica, Outofdoor festival LIncoln center NY and many many more.
