Bio

The official musical ambassadors of the sovereign tropical island nation of Yetchnia, we - the Eggplant Casino - bring messages of peace, happiness and harmony in the form of Afro-Latin-Disco-Calypso-Cabaret - a cocktail of textures, timbres, languages & rhythms that are at once exotic and familiar.

Under the firm yet loving hand of composer, multi-instrumentalist and effervescent front-man Dr. Prof. Olive Mitra, the Eggplant Casino performs music that defies description yet is widely accessible and oddly ubiquitous. Our influences are diverse, sometimes seemingly contradictory, and include the Talking Heads, Serge Gainsbourg, Esquivel!, The Velvet Underground, Rush, Cole Porter, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Devotchka, David Axelrod, and Jorge Ben. From jazzy, epic spacecore jams to dance-insistent Afro-funky disco, the Eggplant Casino has a sound for every ear and a ray of sunshine for every heart.
