Markscheider Kunst (SPB, Russia)

ZZGor and JewFro Records Inc present: MARKSCHEIDER KUNST, a Russian band with a German name that plays music that sounds like the African tropics. Latin-ska fusion from the Northern Havana.
Markscheider Kunst are one of the most prominent club acts of St.Petersburg and Moscow, with a following also in western Europe. Their melodic, irresistibly positive, intoxicating and danceable music, which is best heard live, crosses borders effortlessly.
