BLACK MASALA – TRAINS AND MOONLIGHT DESTINIES
Frankly, we’re a bit surprised that gypsy-influenced brass band Black Masala hadn’t made a proper music video until now. The title track of their brand new full length release Trains and Moonlight Destinies is a perfect place to start. We’ve been fans of this high-energy group for many years now, easily recommending them for fans of Gogol Bordello and Rebirth Brass Band. This vid by Eyelum does a fantastic job of capturing both the mystery and surreality of their lyrics and the punk power of their live show. Co-signers Mike Ounallah and Kristen Long each take parallel Lynch-ian journeys, with camera jump cuts mirroring the song’s brass cadence. Bravo! You’ve got two more chances to catch Black Masala live in 2018: Friday November 30th at Villain & Saint in Bethesda, and another Friday December 21st at The Wharf’s Union Stage.
