Xenia Rubinos can make social consciousness sensual,” says the New York Times. Her catchy yet exuberantly visceral songs meld weighty social issues with intimately personal ones and draw from a broad palette of influences ranging from Caribbean and jazz to indie rock, hip-hop and punk. Xenia will team up with Adam Schatz’s Civil Engineering, a high-energy, 10-member multi-dimensional big band led by the protean multi-instrumentalist Schatz, “New York’s Indie Rock Zelig” (New York Observer) and Landlady frontman, to perform new arrangements of her songs, his songs, and composers they love, and to premiere new works written for the Ecstatic Music Festival.
