Joro Boro

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.

June 3: DJ Suresh, Lisa Hyde, Sadira, Laila Astar

Underground Nomads is 1 year young this week!

Well. it creeped up on us without notice. We kicked off Underground Nomads with Cheb i Sabbah‘s Outernational mix on Tuesday June 4th at Bissap Baobab Village. 364 days / 52 weeks later, we are still going strong at F8 – 1192 Folsom.

The intention of Underground Nomads was 3-fold: To resurrect the “Outernational” vibe that Cheb i Sabbah had created with his legendary Tuesdays at Nickies BBQ in the Lower Haight (his weekly that ran 17+ years); To bring him back out playing for his fans for as long as he would be able to (following the Nickies Flashback event, we realized that his “happy place” was playing for his fans – which he continued to do until his last days here); and to preserve the integrity of truly eclectic world music and dance performance art – a torch that the next generation of DJs, dancers and musicians who were inspired by his music would carry in his honor.
