Next Saturday, Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro, the 75th season of the Wellsboro Community Concert Association will continue with a concert presented by seven musicians all the way from Ukraine.
Kommuna Lux performs their own style of music, “Odesa Gangsta Folk,” thrilling Klezmer music and rowdy speakeasy tunes from their hometown.
Just as the streets of Odessa are rich with nostalgia and a bohemian Black Sea coastal vibe, Kommuna Lux’s melodies are filled with dazzling rhythms, refreshing anarchy, and plenty of joie de vivre.
They bring fun for all ages and are described as “a group of talented and energetic musicians who like to create unforgettable musical experiences for their audience.”
Kommuna Lux plays joyful songs and melodies from Odessa and all Eastern Europe in spiced up arrangements. The goal of their music is not just sound, but real emotions and unforgettable impressions.
The people of Odessa have always been known for their great tolerance, easy-going lifestyle, and very special sense of humor.
Since the beginning of the Russian aggression in Ukraine, Kommuna Lux has collected donations at all of their concerts to support humanitarian causes.
