Diali Cissokho & Kairaba

When: Thu., Feb. 23, 9 p.m. 2012

West African funk and Ethiopian roots reggae join forces for this primal dance party. Energy should be high for this first Triangle show of 2012 for Diali Cissokho & Kairaba. They've just returned from Africa, where they were collecting and perfecting grooves in Mali and Senegal. "We have a new sensibility from playing with the musicians there. We're also that much closer to the music that we play," says percussionist Will Ridenour. Meanwhile, Dub Addis' savory combination of jazz-influenced horns, East African dub and reggae makes for the perfect Motherland combo. Singer-songwriter Jonathan Santos, from the Asheville collective Glocal Soul, brings conscious acoustic soul to the table. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
