About Leche De Tigre
Three nylon-string guitars, drums, bass, cello, percussion, vocals form the 8-piece group Leche De Tigre (LEH-cheh deh TEE-grey), started in 2009 in Kona, Hawaii. A blend of musical styles known as latin gypsy funk, their sound is laced with rock influences and relies on the percussive and melodic impact of acoustic guitars to engage the audience, bringing with it a wide appeal.
Leche De Tigre's 2011 album, Lactophilia, showcases the band's flair for witty, danceable music with eleven original compositions. To hear the album, visit www.LDTband.com. Lactophilia is available as a CD or download directly from the band and online on iTunes and Amazon.
About Nouveau Gypsy Bellydance
Nouveau Gypsy Bellydance is a troupe directed by Stephanie Bolton specializing in the ancient and evolving art of Bellydance. The Nouveau Gypsy style is a fusion of ethnic tribal dances derived from India, North Africa, and countries surrounding the Mediterranean executed with an Art Nouveau aesthetic straight off a vintage postcard. Their signature movements are characterized by intricate muscle isolations and elaborately elegant armwork. You'll find them dripping in jingling jewelry, balancing trays on their heads, playing finger cymbals and spinning with colorful veils. If their dance appeals to you, classes are available at The Dancing Tree Studio in Kainaliu (www.thedancingtree.com).
