Gig Alert: Sagapool

Montreal world music sextet Sagapool experienced a bit of a rebirth in 2008. After performing under the name Manouche for nearly a decade, the group shed its "gypsy jazz" moniker, reflecting its musical shift towards a more ecumenical ethos.

This month, Sagapool (née Manouche) releases its fourth album -- a self-titled record that includes the fun, klezmer-tinged tune “Marcel” — and hits the road to perform a string of North American dates in support of the new material.

On Thursday night, the Canadian group brings its jovial, globally-informed instrumentals to the Living Room. For a taste of the Lower East Side gig, download “Marcel” above and watch a clip of Sagapool’s 2010 Womex showcase below.
