Sunday Buzz: Oysland
Oysland embody the new generation of Yiddish roots music, serving up an exuberant and soulful cocktail of wedding songs and lamenting lullabies. They swoop through centuries of traditional pieces gleaned from Eastern Europe with panache, adding wider scopes from the Balkans, whilst preserving all the essential & original ingredients. Expect heartfelt melodies, foot-stomping beats and echoes of a bygone era.
Oysland have recently released their first album and are winners of the World Music Network Battle of the Bands 2017.
