Les Yeux Noirs in Concert

Theatre Raymond Kabbaz

10361 W Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90064

7:30pm to 9:00pm

Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz (TRK), the performance space at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, is pleased to present the exhilarating Les Yeux Noirs In Concert on Saturday, March 7 at 7:30pm in Los Angeles.

This Paris-based sextet offers an irresistible invitation to participate in some of the most rhythmic and emotional sounds emanating from any part of the world. Part gypsy, part klezmer, this is the music that has moved people to sing and dance around the world for centuries. With each frenetic stroke of their bows, they take the listener further into a dizzying vortex of Central European sounds and images. They sing songs in French, Russian, Rumanian and Yiddish
Olivier and Eric Slabiak, the two founders, were conservatory-trained violonists who changed their tune after hearing klezmer and gypsy music. The band combines violins, violoncello, accordion, electric guitar, cimbalom, and electronic samples in innovative, highly complementary ways.

When listening to “Les Yeux Noirs” the word that comes to mind is “virtuoso.” The two violinists of the group play in a way that provokes awe, no doubt they could take on the Devil. They can play faster than fast yet have the facility to be wildly playful or deeply serious. Slabiak brothers are the Hendrix of the violin – they don’t take themselves too seriously but manage to infuse each song with emotion. It is hard to sit still when listening to the infectious beats they create.
“It’s music for travelers,” says violinist Eric Slabiak of the group’s music, “We wish you a good trip!”

Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for students. A no host bar will be available.

Blk Grrrl Book Fair

Cielo Galleries/Studios

3201 Maple Street, Los Angeles, 90011

10:00pm

Inaugural Blk Grrrl Book Fair Saturday, March 7.

LOS ANGELES, December 1, 2014 /BRICKBATPR/ --The inaugural Blk Grrrl Book Fair will be held on Saturday, March 7 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Cielo Galleries/Studios located at 3201 Maple Street in South Central Los Angeles 90011.

Blk Grrrl Books Fair is a book fair, an art show, literary reading series and short film festival with a focus on politically active feminists.

Blk stands for politically active person of African descent.
Grrrl is from the third wave feminist Riot Grrrl movement.

The Blk Grrrl Book Fair idea was sparked from the “MPC presents the Blk Grrrl Show!” an underground vlog on the visual and literary arts in Los Angeles which is hosted and produced by Teka-Lark Fleming .

The co-coordinator is Skira Martinez gallerist, artist and owner of Cielo Galleries/Studios.
“The event is inclusive of everyone. Skira and I wanted to have a true inclusive literary event that includes everyone, because most literary events aren’t typically very inclusive of Black and Latino people outside of the spoken word venue. We write fiction and nonfiction too. We also publish,” said founder and coordinator, Teka-Lark Fleming.

The film festival will be curated by Zoe Blaq of Piddle Productions.

There will also be a special live studio audience “MPC presents the Blk Grrrl Show!” panel on the topic of the three Eastsides -- the Black Eastside, the Latino Eastside and the white Eastside at 3 p.m.

For updates and more information on the Blk Grrrl Book Fair visit http://www.blkgrrrlshow.com or Twitter by using hashtag: #BlkGrrrl.
