Joro-Boro is a crypto crunk charlatan born in Bulgaria. He plays and promotes etnoteck, glitch-folk and post-national bass – the dirty local side of globalization force-fed back into a party without borders detonating the conglomerated mono-culture. Joro-Boro established himself at the Bulgarian Bar (Mehanata) in New York City where he was the resident DJ alongside Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello) for seven years. He has toured with Balkan Beat Box, and has performed with artists ranging from Bassnectar to Tinariwen.
Undergound Nomads resident DJ, Dulce Vita, will be opening the night.
Jill Parker teaches weekly classes at ODC & Spring Fall (Berkeley). The founder of modern fusion belly dance, her debut instructional DVD, Jill’s Drills, is now available. Danielle Lottridge, Ph.D., a scholar and a dancer, teaches at ODC and for SF Rec and Parks. In addition to performing a choreography by Jill and Danielle, a small group of their students will also be performing their own solos and duets.
