  • Location: Barbès, 376 9th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215, United States (Google Maps) Time: 10:00 pm to 11:30 pm In the 1960's and 1970's, the government of Guinea engaged in a campaign known as Authenticité. It was a drive to create a new musical movement that would be specifically Guinean, but would include the modern wonders that were the electric guitar, the electric bass and the drumset. Musicians were given instruments and orchestras were formed. Surprisingly, the results proved mesmerizing and a myriad new bands were born. Many of them would go on to have a profound and lasting impact on African music. Mamady Kouyate was one of those pioneers. He played in various bands - his own band, Les Ambassadeurs du Mandingue, being one of them - but is probably best known as the guitarist in the classic Bembeya Jazz National. Kouyate, who now lives in NY, has reformed the Mandingo Ambassadors, updating the sound of his youth, but keeping it very close to the standard of Authenticité. The new All-Star band includes Mamady "Djelike" Kouyate, guitar, leader; Bebe Camara, vocal; Eudy Fernandez, trumpet; Oran Etkin, tenor sax, clarinet; Sylvain Leroux, flute, Fula flute, alto sax; Sam Dickey, guitar; Nick Cudahy, bass; Andy Algire, drums; Foluso Mimy, percussion. “dazzling vocal and guitar patterns over a rhythm section that is like a perfect system” Ben Ratliff, NY Times.

    The Jimmy Heath Big Band
    Fondly nicknamed “Little Bird” (for his similarities to legend Charlie “Bird” Parker), James Edward Heath is one of the finest saxophonists to ever play the horn. A noted composer, arranger, educator, author and big band leader as well, he is a man of many talents. He started off playing the alto saxophone in the 1940s, working with Howard McGhee and Dizzy Gillespie, but soon switched over to the tenor sax. From there, he would form his own band in ’46, which included John Coltrane on its roster and was a hit on the Philadelphia jazz scene. As he took up big band, Benny Golson, Specs Wright, Cal Massey, Johnny Coles, Ray Bryant, and Nelson Boyd would also join his crew. In 1959 he had a stint with Miles Davis’s group, and worked with Milt Jackson all through the ‘60s. He teamed up with his brothers Percy and Albert in 1975 to form the Heath Brother (View Full Event Description Here: http://www.cityparksfoundation.org/event/the-jimmy-heath-big-band/)

    Totó La Momposina
    Sonia Bazanta Vides, well known by her lavish stage name, Totó La Momposina, has spent her life cheerfully spreading the native music of Colombia’s Caribbean coastline. She was raised on an island off the coast, called Mompox (this is where she derived the “Momposina” of her moniker). A place where African, Indigenous Indian and Spanish cultures mingle, the resulting musical potpourri there is resplendently diverse, and has informed Vides’ vast work (herself of Afro-Colombian and Indigenous descent). Totó is not only a world famous singer, but an accomplished dancer as well. Learning from her mother (who directed a dance troupe in Bogotá), Totó branched out on her own and started a band in the 1960s. Taking the international stage by storm, she began touring the globe in the ‘70s. By the 90s (View Full Event Description Here: http://www.cityparksfoundation.org/event/totolamomposina-mariachiflordetoloache/)

    Mon Laferte
    Norma Monserrat Bustamante is a renaissance woman of many musical stylings. Born in Chile, she began playing all manner of instruments at a young age. After joining a musical conservatory at age 13, she promptly set out on her own, teaching herself the intricacies of composition. Navigating the night, she played her guitar, piano, drums and harmonica and sang at bars all throughout the city of Valparaíso. She released her first album in 2003, the playful, classically Latin La Chica de Rojo, a showcase of her clear and powerful vocals. Over the next few years, she truly came into her own. She moved to Mexico City and her sound evolved into the breathtaking fusion of rock, blues, pop and electronica that it is today. In 2011, she put out Desechable, under the brand new handle Mon Laferte. As some songs featured folksy acoustic guitars and others pulsed with synth, this album deliv (View Full Event Description Here: http://www.cityparksfoundation.org/event/mon-laferte-princess-nokia-ife-association-latin-alternative-music-conference/)

    If you’re a professional musician from Argentina, and you have an everlasting proclivity for reggae-rock music, there’s a good chance that you’re part of Los Pericos. Indeed, an entirely new sound was formed in Buenos Aires when a group of friends got together and created this groundbreaking group in 1986, the first Latin-Reggae band of its kind. Their principal record was a smash-hit; the number-one selling album in the country and a Triple Platinum Award recipient. The ‘90s saw the popularity of Los Pericos spread like wildfire, as their album Big Yuyo could be heard positively pulsing throughout Latin America. As they toured throughout the continent, Los Pericos exponentially grew their reach and audience. In the early 2000s, the band undertook a major sonic shift, as they switched lead vocalists. With a reinvigorated, fresh sound, they took the new millennium by storm. 2016 saw the cu (View Full Event Description Here: http://www.cityparksfoundation.org/event/los-pericos-chicano-batman-la-vida-boheme-association-latin-alternative-music-conference/)
