Beats Antqiue is a trio composed of David Satori (guitar, saz, viola, and percussion), Sidecar Tommy Cappel (keys, toy piano, drums, and percussion), and Zoë Jakes (belly dancer, composer, and arranger). Their music jams together Middle Eastern grooves, the spirit of Balkan weddings, gypsy jazz, flamenco, hip-hop, and dub all blasted with electronica that sounds like club-ready world music.
The live act complements Jakes’ unique dance style, a hybrid of belly dance with tango, break, and Bollywood dance. Their display, according to this photo set, looks all over the map just like their music. You can practically feel the heat of the bonkers energy radiating from these photos:
