Formed in 2009, Kalinka, a Santa Barbara-based acoustic group, is among the liveliest bands on California’s Central Coast, playing a blend of Jewish klezmer tunes, popular gypsy tunes, vintage jazz, French café music, Fellini film scores, and Eastern European melodies. Their acoustic sound is joyous, sweet, and gutsy. To their wide repertoire of music, they bring consummate musicianship and zest. They play frequently in town at Reds, at Muddy Waters, on KCSB, and at festivals and events.
