A modern blend of ancient party music with human beatbox, electronics, a taste of traditional middle eastern flavor, and a mouthful of NYC style.

We hope you enjoy listening and dancing to our music as much as we do playing it. Here are what some of our fans are saying:

"Provides inspiration for aspiring artists, musical or otherwise. Allows for stretching the imagination to the limit. Djinn - yeah, they are."

"Some of the songs in this album are so good they can actually induce orgasm. Brooklyn balady transports me to a past life... "

Cümbüs, Oud

Carmine has been in love with Middle Eastern music for years: "I started playing melody so I could make these great songs happen anytime I wanted." Carmine's main instrument, the cümbüs (pronounced joom-bush) originates from Turkey and derives it's name for the Turkish word for fun and revelry.

Brad is an illustrator, designer and musician from Kalamazoo. He was originally introduced to Middle Eastern music and dance through his wife, Kaeshi, and his growth as a musician has exploded playing with Djinn. He's always game to try a new noise-maker so feel free to make a suggestion.
