Meltdown is The Moors' latest five-track EP, released in June 2014.
From the title track, a topical English klezmer/funk rap, to the manic 11/16 dance "Kopanitsa" to the beautiful Balkan Gypsy tune "Ederlezi", the 2,000-year-old dance "Tamzará and the folk medley of "Jota Alistana" (from Western Spain) and "Andro", it gives a pretty good idea of where the band are right now.

THE MOORS are a band founded in 2009 in Hastings, East Sussex, UK, by Elaine and Ken Edwards. We have played many indoor and outdoor gigs in South East England and beyond.
THE MOORS’ brew includes Balkan music, klezmer, mediaeval Sephardic melodies, Cuban rhythms, jazz, blues, folk and rock music, and encompasses original compositions as well as arrangements of traditional music.
HOT (Hastings Online Times) met The Moors recently.
Try and catch us live if you can. As one happy promoter said: "Their unique combination of technical brilliance with foot-stomping energy always lights up the audience when they play."
And a member of the audience at our 2013 Brighton Fringe gig added: "What an amazing performance. By an incredibly talented band. It was my initiation into the wonderful world of Klezmer, Balkan and... all kinds of gorgeous rhythms and melodies."

Looking for the (US) Moors? The US-based band called the Moors is not currently active but has a loyal following. Their original and traditional songs combine Celtic, medieval and modern music in an unforgettable electronic and otherworldy setting, drawing on the trance-inducing and consciousness-altering properties of overtones, featuring primal percussion and haunting winds and vocals.
