Toubab Krewe Set Release and Tour - A Top Story This Week

Toubab Krewe Set Release and Tour was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (PR) The Appalachian mountains may not seem a likely source of African-rooted music, but "funky, hard hitting" (Global Rhythm) Toubab Krewe, of Asheville, North Carolina, blends West African rhythms with rock, creating a sound all its own and earning a devoted following at performances from Bonnaroo to the legendary Festival of the Desert in Essakane, Mali.

What the Village Voice calls the "futuristic, psychedelic, neo-griot frenzy" of Toubab Krewe's shows has now been captured on their second album, 'Live at the Orange Peel' (ADA, 1/06/09).

Toubab Krewe's tour begins in Denver, Colorado December 30th; the record release show will be at New York's S.O.B.'s on January 8th. It's not quite as extensive as Toubab Krewe's journey from Buncombe (Asheville's county) to Mali's Badala (the subject of the first video from the release), but there'll be just as many opportunities for frenzied dancing. - more on this story
