Odessa Gangsta Folk band from the Ukrainian Black Sea coast performs the mixture of Klezmer/Balkan music with Odessa «hooligan» folk songs. There is always original atmosphere of old bandit times and special sense of Odessa humor well known in the world at the band’s concerts. There is always «alive fish» as it is said in Odessa manner. Each performance of Felix Shinder’s band is a true show with a lot of interaction with an audience.
