Hey All -
If you haven't heard of Toubab Krewe yet, get ready. If you have, you
know what I'm talking about.
Toubab Krewe will be in town next week for 2 local shows:
Tuesday, Apr 3 2007 @ 9:00P at the Black Rep's Xxodus Café in Providence
Wednesday, Apr 4 2007 @ 9:00P at Harper's Ferry in Boston
Blending Malian, American and "Dirty South" influences into a sound all
its own, Toubab Krewe "has set a new standard for fusions of rock 'n'
roll and West African music," says Banning Eyre at Afropop Worldwide.
Members of the group developed their unique sound over the course of
numerous extended trips to West Africa, where they immersed themselves
in the local culture and studied and performed with musicians such as
Lamine Soumano, Vieux Kante, Madou Dembele and Koungbanan Conde. The
magnetic instrumental quintet formed in early 2005 and has attracted a
diverse and devoted national following, captivating crowds everywhere
from the Bonnaroo and High Sierra music festivals to the Blue Note and
the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Their energetic
performances and acclaimed self-titled debut have won them praise from
the New York Times, Global Rhythm, Afropop Worldwide and more.
