Fresh from a spate of electrifying performances at the Bern Strassenmusik Festival in Switzerland, Yurodny continue to push the envelope and explore further afield, with voyages into the worlds of Bela Bartok, nu-electronica, Dmitri Shostakovich, noise art and John Zorn, as well as continued investigation into Macedonian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Klezmer and Romanian traditional dance forms.
