Album Notes
The Electrocarpathians formed in San Diego, California in 1988 to further the fusion of East European styles such as Klezmer, Polka, and Czardas with classic Rock and Latin music. They performed at legendary folk club Drowsy Maggie's throughout the cafe's existence. They appeared regularly at the Better Worlde Galeria until that venue closed in 1995. Their first album, 'Umpires of Straw', released in 2001 by Global Village Music (New York), was subtitled 'Slavic Music Collected in the Midwest performed by California Surfer Gypsy Punk Rockers'. 'Fighting for Harmony', their second release (2005), was fueled by a continuing search for Byzantine roots in dance music originating in South California and Tijuana. This album, recorded live (except for the addition of clarinetist Bill Lamden) at San Diego's Studio West, incorporates flamenco guitar (Juan Moro) and cajon (Marco Emtesali) for the first time in band's 24-year history. 'Cafe Bego' is also the first Electrocarpathians release to feature trumpet, played in the Balkan style by Melissa Mejia.
