WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Kultur Shock “Tamni Vilajet”

We like this particular WMSE Song Of the Day, because we know we’ve got the opportunity to see the band, live…tomorrow.  Seattle’s Kultur Shock will be closing out Day One of Alverno Presents’ Global Union 2011, and they’ll more than likely do so in raucous style. Lead by former Yugoslav pop star, Gino Srdjan Yevdjevich (vocals), his pack of musicians, Val Kiossovski (guitar), Guy Davis (bass), Amy Denio (saxophone), Paris Hurley (violin) and Chris Stromquist (drums), trade wild instrumentation back and forth in the Balkan style, never shying away from what’s in their hearts and on their minds. Yevdjevich says, “Kultur Shock doesn’t sing about broken hearts and flowers, but about everyday existence and faith that it might get better. Or worse. Punk describes our will to fight for what we believe in, Balkan melodies are the voice of the people we are part of and representing, and finally, metal adventures are our way to rage against the machine.” Absorb the energies of Kultur Shock’s music tomorrow for Global Union (Saturday, September 17th) at Bay View’s Humboldt Park as the band takes the stage at 4 p.m.
