  • RaR Bar 30-01 35th Avenue Long Island City, NY, 11106 United States (map)

SisterMonk is a conundrum. Obviously it's a party, but what's the party about? It's funk, it's trance, but without drugs, and its nor quite hipster though that's the crowd right now. It's world music, but not really. It's hippie, earthy crunchy, let's heal ourselves, yay, but not really.
It's not mythic rock like Genesis or Pink Floyd, who flamboyantly retell the stories of their generation.
SisterMonk is something very acoustic -a djembe at the heart of the music, a female lead, could be Women's folk festival material, though who's going to relate to it - the lyrics are written by a man.
So there's that element of surprise. The lyrics are also imagistic. Ultimately, it's about the vibe, and the vibe is big and colorful.
