"Blending Malian, American and "Dirty South" influences into a sound all its own, Toubab Krewe has been credited with bridging the gap between West African and American music unlike any group before them, quickly winning a diverse and devoted following at top venues such as the Bonnaroo and Vegoose festivals to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Their live shows and self-titled debut album have won international acclaim from the New York Times, Global Rhythm, fRoots, NPR and more." - from the band website.
I have seen the band perform twice at the High Noon Saloon and more recently at the 10,000 lakes festival. Toubab Krewe rocks! If you dig Afrobeat, blues, drums and guitars and are looking to shake your stuff, Hign Noon Saloon is the place to be! See you there - malliman
