Balún is a self-proclaimed "dreambow" ensemble whose members hail from Puerto Rico. Though currently residing in New York City, island culture remains the cornerstone of their forward-thinking, malleable sound. Balún incorporates Caribbean rhythms, old school dembow, glitchy IDM and dreamy dance pop into tunes that are slick and modern but firmly rooted in the traditional sounds of their homeland. balunonline.com

As 75 Dollar Bill, plywood crate percussionist Rick Brown and guitarist Che Chen make electric, richly patterned music that can shape-shift from joyful dance tunes to slowly changing trance minimalism—an uncategorizable hybrid which draws on early electric blues, the modal traditions of West Africa, India and the Middle East, Sun Ra’s space chords and the minimalist and No Wave histories of their hometown New York. Their acclaimed new album I Was Real is out now on Thin Wrist/Black Editions Group (and tak:til / Glitterbeat Records in Europe).

They will be joined by a very special musical guest for a one-hour improvised set inspired by Isamu Noguchi’s sculptures. Noguchi was an engaged appreciator of the world’s music, and his stone sculpture installation provides an intimate setting for this collaboration.
