The New York Times says Xenia Rubinos “can make social consciousness sensual.” Her catchy, 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, hop-hop and punk. Xenia teams up with Adam Schatz’s Civil Engineering, a 10-member multi-dimensional big band led by Schatz, that performs new arrangements of her sons, his songs, and composers they love. New works commissioned by Ecstatic Music Festival.
