Odessa Gangsta Folk
Ukraine’s Kommuna Lux performs "Odessa Gangsta Folk:" thrilling Klezmer music and rowdy speakeasy tunes from their hometown, powered by rocket fuel. Just as the streets of Odessa are rich with nostalgia and a bohemian Black Sea coastal vibe, Kommuna Lux’s melodies are filled with dazzling rhythms, refreshing anarchy, and plenty of joie de vivre!
The seven musicians founded the group around 2014. Surprised Odessites discovered flash mobs of the “gangsters” making music all around town: the Privoz market, the old #5 wooden tram line, the Primorsky Boulevard promenade, and rusty rocking boats at Lustdorf Beach. This pioneering time was followed by major concerts on renowned stages of the city, the country, and then worldwide.
Since the beginning of the Russian aggression in Ukraine, Kommuna Lux has collected donations at all their concerts to support humanitarian causes. They honor their hometown and Ukraine’s heroes with a brilliant sound and spectacular concert!
