African Music for the Holidays - Four Bands Live from Barbes

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

We couldn't think of a more festive way to celebrate the arrival of the holiday season than with a night of exuberant African sounds live from Barbès, the music-lover's haven at 9th St and 6th Ave in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Tune in or join us at Barbès for the captivating West African guitar wizardry of Abdoulaye Alhassane with special guest Banning Eyre; the cathartic Ghanaian style highlife workouts of No Small Money Brass Band; the electrifying Pan-African percussive onslaught of Akoko Nante Ensemble, and the sumptuous Sudanese stylings of Alsarah and the Nubatones.
As usual the tireless Irene Trudel will be both technical guru and co-host with Rob. Admission is free during the broadcast (although performers may pass the hat for voluntary donations) - and you can stuff your Hanukkah stockings with free FMU swag too!
