Join us at the Malden Pops Up Gallery Gift Shop as we host the Astronauts of Albania, Folk, Jazz trio led by Albanian emigre flutist Geni Skendo.
Explore the gallery and experience the sounds of Albanian folk music infused with jazz, classical and global music. Even the instrumentation tells a story: shakuhachi and bass flute, guitar, bass, and drums. Distinctive, odd meter Balkan grooves provide both a skeleton for dazzling solos and a contrast with free-improvised sections; sonic excursions spin out of international instrumentation and lead in surprising directions.
