L’Impérial Kikiristan (Free Art on 8th Event)
September 8, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pmFree
Brass Band and Satire from France.
Between merengue and Turkish delight, Persian cha cha cha and swing from the Eurasian Steppe, the borders of the Schengen area explode when they are in touch with the most popular brass band from one of its least known (and possibly imaginary) countries: Kikiristan.
Its traditions, like a constantly renewed audio travel diary, comes from improbable journeys: from Central Asia to North Africa, across cabarets of Oran, a hair salon in Tel Aviv and poultry Kazakh markets; from Bollywood to Broadway, from the Silk Road to Highway 66, Impérial Kikiristan has performed more than1000 times in 8 years, on stage or in the street, in more than 30 countries, which, in this case, really are on the map.
This event takes place on the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market (716 Monroe St. NE), just steps away from Brookland-CUA Metro (Red Line).
The rain location for this event will be Monroe Street Market Artist Studio, 716 Monroe St NE, Washington, DC 20017
