Yurt Party – Album Release Tour
October 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm NZDT$25
Ōtautahi street party kings YURT PARTY are taking their irrepressible grooves on the road this spring, with seven shows across the motu to celebrate the release of their debut album.
Yurt Party are a one-of-a-kind musical feast, creating collective joy for over 5 years across Aotearoa. The 6+ piece Ōtautahi band have been electrifying festival dance-floors and winning over the hearts of their audiences with foot-stomping fusions of Balkan, Latin and Dub goodness.
Having built somewhat of a reputation as a live act at venues and festivals in recent years, the band strived to capture that same essence and magic with the new recordings. Their debut single ‘Hypervigilante’ was warmly received in August, and will be followed by an eponymous album, due on September 8th.
With their debut album, Yurt Party, the band distills 5 years of evolution, from acoustic trio to groove powerhouse. Each track captures the intensity, enthusiasm and musicality of the band in their eclectically irresistible style. The tracks on the album were written by various members of the band, who drew inspiration from the Balkans, Cuba and by collective improvisation with each other.
Ain’t no party like a Yurt Party.
