Mec Yek

Balkan motown gipsy hip

Fronted by a pair of spirited Roma sisters from Slovakia, Mec Yek is the brainchild of Piet Maris, former frontman of Jaune Toujours. His fascination with Eastern European gypsy culture has culminated in forming this tradition-savvy yet musically adventurous combo, one powered along by accordion, clarinet, double bass and drums. The music is a combination of “earthy traditionalism and hot jazz”.
