for a special global music performance today with Malian diva Khaira Arby
at 5:30pm on The Home Stretch.
Khaira Arby and her band bring Saharan desert blues to the Club Congress
stage Tuesday, May 22nd in an early, KXCI Presents!
show. Khaira and her ensemble combine rhythms of Mali, ethnic female vocals and dancing electric guitars of Timbuktu for a night of authentic African music. Think Tinariwen
meets Ali Farka Toure
, who is Khaira's cousin that she trained with. They played last year at Club Congress and it was truly one of the most memorizing and memorable shows of the year!
Coming Wednesday, another Studio 2A with Plants and Animals. These Canadian indie-rockers are playing another KXCI Presents! show at Club Congress.
