The opening night of French Institute Alliance Francaise 2013 World Nomad’s festival features what should be a stunning performance  of Sonia M’barek, one of the Arab World’s finest singers.

Kakande + Cumbiagra @ Webster Hall

Kakande is the brainchild of bandleader Famoro Dioubate, a Guinean master of the Balafon. Featuring a powerful full band sound around Dioubate’s blistering playing, the band is not to be missed! For more info, see HERE.

Xenia Rubinos @ Cameo Gallery 

XR Xenia has been NYC’s indy darling for quite some time now, playing well received sets at LAMC and South by Southwest. She is (to our great excitement) releasing Magic Trix, her first full length album, and this Friday is the album release show. Definitely one to check out.

 Sat, May 4th
