Letter-Black Sheep Ensemble is vagapunk street music for the masses
Vagapunk (vag’uh-puhngk), adj. characterized by loud and boisterous wanderings between places, influences, and genres, inspiring outbursts of wild dancing and debauchery.
Black Sheep Ensemble’s rowdy street performances—rooted in Balkan, Bollywood, Second Line, Latin and Ska—bring crowds up on their feet, out to the streets, and into the music. This rambling party of talented carousers sparks celebration at every turn with low brass belting out the bass line while eccentric drums drive the dance.
