In association with the Chutzpah! Festival, Caravan is excited to be once again hosting Les Yeux Noirs, fronted by the amazing duo violin brothers, Eric & Oliver Slabiak!

Hailing from France, brothers Eric and Olivier Slabiak lead Les Yeux Noirs in exhilarating, winding musical journeys, most often conducted at a pedal-to-the-metal, breakneck speed! From fast and furious Gypsy jazz to slow and quiet Eastern European lullabies, the sounds of Les Yeux Noirs make an exciting evening of music with dynamic shifts of tempos, languages and genres. They have toured throughout their native France as well as Europe, North America, Australia and Asia.

“…When listening to Eric and Olivier Slabiak the word that comes to mind is “virtuoso.” The two play in a way that provokes awe – They can play faster than fast yet have the facility to be wildly playful or deeply serious. They are the Hendrix of the violin – It is hard to sit still when listening to the infectious beats they create.” The Huffington Post

“[Les Yeux Noirs] is all about bursting boundaries while exploring musical heritages common to diverse cultures…The classically trained fiddlers were dazzling.” Columbus Dispatch
