Gala forces audience expectations to the fore, and blurs the lines between failure and success in performance as it suggests that theater is community, both onstage and off. It’s a tour de force, wildly entertaining and truly radical. – The New York Times

(Re)discover Jérome Bel’s declaration of love to the performing arts! 
A colourful mix of dance lovers and professional dancers from diverse genres and cultures perform a veritable New Year’s gala.
But this gala radically questions the codes of the performing arts.

The gypsy incarnation that has developed from Jaune Toujours is called Mec Yek and Super Diver City is their latest recording.

Super Diver City contains some musical surprises: twelve tracks, nine particular arrangements of traditional Roma-songs, two songs written by singers Katia and Milka and one Amy Winehouse cover translated into Romanès. All nicely mixed together by Shazalakazoo, leading duo in Balkan Beats from Belgrade, Serbia. Also, against all expectations: Mec Yek is a gypsy band without violin.

It's available through Bandcamp or in our own webshop above.
