About this Event

It's a funky fresh, worldly and other-worldy event! Our main mission here: throw a bad-ass party, celebrate art that embraces world culture, and get an exclusive first listen of the entire Man Made Fire album by Petite Celine a week before its official release.

[Optional dress theme below]

Hosted by the fabulous Joe Morris, the event kicks off with 2 live bands, Sivan Arbel and Jack & the Beanstalk, followed by a toast and a complete performance of the unreleased album from beginning to end by Petite Celine and her band.

Between acts, you can expect some big laughs, with tickling bits from our host, and comedians, Deno DeMartino and Evan Scott.

Then we'll dive into where the wild things are with entrancing house music and the psychedelic realms of IDM by some of New York’s most inspired DJs.

*** Attire: Dress your culture! (your heritage or whatever you most closely identify with)

This whole album and mission was inspired by Petite Celine’s experience as a young girl at the Lycée Français, an international school, where she went to school with kids from around the world. She fondly cherishes her memories of UN day, when all the kids would come into school dressed in the garb of their native cultures and bringing with them toys and foods from their motherlands! We won’t turn anyone down at the door, but the top 5 most dedicated dressers will received a free album (be sure to arrive before 9:30pm to qualify).

In order of appearance:

Evan Scott 7:30p

Evan Scott is a Brooklyn based and raised Comedian, Artist, Lover, and Pizza Lord Grand Master. When not scouring the streets for the next big slice, he is delivering the hot cheesy goodness of his jokes! Aside from open-mics club life in NYC, the Man Made Fire release will be his debut! So stay tuned for more accolades!

Sivan Arbel 7:40p

Sivan Arbel ​is an effervescent talent on the international jazz scene. Her original music, arrangements and lyrics open a window into her inner world. She playfully layers her diverse artistic expressions with her love for jazz and musical influences grounded in her Israeli roots and global travels. As a performer, Sivan lights the room and rivets audiences as she fuses her distinct rhythm and groove with scat improvisation, movement and dance.

Sivan Arbel is ​an Israeli vocalist, bandleader and composer who arrived at the New York City Jazz scene in November 2014 and has not looked back since. In June 2016, “Sivan” released her debut album "Broken Lines", ​which instantly received international recognition and media coverage. In his extensive review, Travis Rogers, Jr. – The Jazz Owl wrote: "’Broken Lines’ ​is a wonder. “Sivan Arbel”​ has captured love and longing, respect and reflection, and then set loose an emotional and lyrical watercolor that remains fresh and lively long after the album has ended. To transmit such joy—and for it to remain so long after—must be the greatest gift one can give. So it is with “Sivan”, she imparts joy and it remains."

Sivan quickly began to make her mark in the local and international jazz scenes, most recently touring in cities across Japan, performing at the Minsk Jazz Festival, The Bratislava Jazz Days Festival, The Boston Jazz Festival, The Fort Greene Jazz Festival, the Zinc Bar (NYC) and the Cornelia Street Café – Israeli Jazz Spotlight. Sivan holds a B.A. with High Honors in Jazz Performance from the Newpark Music Centre (Dublin, Ireland), and is a graduate from the acclaimed Rimon School of Music in Israel in jazz performance.

Petite Celine 9:30p

Petite Celine is a Franco-American indie singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist based out of Brooklyn, NY. Born to a French Air Force colonel and an American lawyer-gone-psychic-detective, Celine rebelled into the arts, excelling first in acting for film & TV, working with directors such as Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood by the age of 10, and picking up a handful of instruments along the way.

As a native New Yorker growing up between two countries, a very petite Celine noticed some pretty big differences in the music that got airplay internationally. French radio aired a diverse selection of music, featuring a wide variety of languages and cultures - exciting Celine, a multi-linguist herself - while US radio cemented her love for American Pop.

But it wasn't until college, when Celine found herself homeless with only a small suitcase and the guitar on her back, that she started performing her own compositions for complete strangers. Busking on the streets of Lower Manhattan, she discovered the power music has to bring people together from all walks of life.

Today, Petite Celine plays regularly across the Tristate area, where her LED paintings have also become accompaniment to the act. Her mission, a Petite World, is to celebrate cultures from around the globe and build bridges not borders. Petite Celine’s sound is fueled by fusion and uplifted by her love for Pop. This can be heard on her debut Folk album, Young Soldier, as well as in a wide variety of collaborations with American & French songwriters / producers. But most notably on the upcoming World Pop album, Man Made Fire, scheduled to release March 15th, 2019, which incorporates several languages and musical influences

AMAWALK 11:30p

AMAWALK is derived from Native American translations leaning towards "The high ground where the birch tree grows"; "People gathering up a little hill". It has become the title of a musical journey with no destination in sight, a path leading with love and harmony within sound - especially after having spent significant time in that region of NY, where the trees whisper to one another across an endlessly rolling valley of greenery. Buffalo Jay catalogs his own genre as Dreamsound Surrealism - world instrumentation and psychedelia. Embrace your truth.

Secret DJ 12:30am

Epic closer guaranteed.

We caught a big fish. No spoilers ;)

Lino Bernabe [Fine Art Installation]

Lino has developed a process of painting that uses colored light to divide one image into three images. Red light is scene one, green light is scene two, blue light is scene three. The sequencing of RGB light produces the effect of a moving picture, creating the ability for the two-dimensional medium of oil painting to expand into the fourth dimension, time. The work is first a physical process and phenomenon that is situated in the realm of physics and color theory. However, when applied in the realm of the fine arts it culminates in a discussion of the cinematic. The figures become the characters, “Space” becomes the scene and the still image becomes a motion picture.

In terms of content, Lino considers himself a storyteller narrating on the human condition. Though he may have greater personal ties to some stories, he likes to remain impartial and always endeavor to the portray the larger picture. He has always been attracted to the carnivalesque; his early work depicted the struggle between the narrative of fear, sex, gore and the dilemma of illusion. The question then was how to transform the canvas into a palpable sensory experience beyond the three-dimensional plane without falling into the trappings of spectacle; his study was supplemented by the concept of cinema.

Lino is Cuban American, native to Miami and currently residing in New York. He comes from a privileged family of refugees who sought out political asylum, freedom and basic human rights in America. He describes it as “privileged” because he comes from a culture that instills and practices a stoic perspective; instead of harping on losing everything they had (as the story goes) or how his grandfather was a political prisoner for twenty years, they left a naive island and embraced a peninsula that hangs off of North America. This place was Miami and it is that culture has morphed it into what it is today.

Miami, aka “North Havana”, has a light of its own trailed by the color that falls from it. Somewhere in that wake, a Cuban boy is swimming and is mesmerized by a creature’s changing skin colors. He is silenced by its transforming shape and texture that is juxtaposed sharply against the environment of the tropics; from rock, to sand, to a spectrum divided by every and any possible variation of altering hues. Since the sighting of this creature, this octopus, Lino has continued to seek out the privilege of morphing images into the shapes of colored environments.
