EMEFE, The Brand New Life, The Beast

When: Tue., Jan. 15, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Led by Antibalas drummer Miles Arntzen, New York 10-piece EMEFE loosens the hips, moves the feet and spreads joy with an adventurous take on Afrobeat and funk that's irresistible and impressive. The massive ensemble joins like-minded Greensboro crew The Brand New Life, which uses plentiful percussion and horns to stir a melting pot of West African traditions and free jazz. Durham's The Beast deftly balances hip-hop with soulful jazz. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $7-10
