U.S. Le Chat Lunatique performs in Tajikistan

June 26, 2014

The United Sates music group Le Chat Lunatique has arrived n Tajikistan. The band is giving a free concert at the Vefa Center in Dushanbe today at 7-30 pm.

The event is organized by the United Sates Embassy in Dushanbe.

The group members include Muni Kulasinghe (violin, vocal), John Sandlin (electric guitar, vocal), Jared Putnam (bass-guitar, vocal) and Fernando Garavito (drums).

"Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call 'filthy, mangy jazz', a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much - if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and StÉphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, d00-wop, and "anything else we damn well please" into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike," the band's website says.
