La Troba Kung-Fu

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Live Session: From the Catalan region of Spain, Barcelona / La Gallega’s La Troba Kung-Fu: Fantastic accordion-driven offspring of the legendary Dusminguet uses the distinctive rumba Catalan as the “surfboard” for their genre-leaping mirth-making.

La Troba Kung Fu is among the featured artists at Globalfest, the annual world music mega showcase at Webster Hall, this year on Sunday night January 11. Globalfest is presented in conjunction with APAP, the annual Arts Presenters Conference.

Castillana-American girl and her Spanish-by-marriage husband here, digging the daylights out of this set. Long time fans of Peret and Dusminguet, wish they got more airplay on FMU. Thanks for this, Rob!
