Balkan Beat Box, Delhi 2 Dublin

[GLOBAL GOULASH] It’s no coincidence that after Balkan Beat Box frontman Tomer Yosef was mistaken for a terrorist and detained by the TSA the Israeli-New York trio got all political on its hard-charging last album, Give. Its stripped-down sound—which thrust the album’s angry lyrics, inspired by Occupy, the Arab Spring and other global uprisings, front and center—might seem a bit thinner than before. But rest assured, BBB’s danceable, saxophone-juiced compound of hip-hop, electronica, dancehall, dub, rock and Middle Eastern and East European influences packs as much punch as ever live. In combo with the Bhangra-meets-Celtic vibe of Vancouver’s Delhi 2 Dublin and Portland’s own global DJ duo Anjali and the Incredible Kid, this show is a world-music wonderland.
