Basis Of Funk / Kisses With Foreign Fishes

KFF 11-27-16 Crazy Good Stuff

beets

For whatever reason my first two shows didn’t have a whole lot of artists from the continent of Africa; it’s a bit unfathomable to me how that happened. Anyway, I’ll be making up for it this show. Got some pop from Zimbabwe, a bit of afrobeat (!), and some crazy fusion rap and electronica from euro-african artists. Also on the menu: hindi throwbacks, electroswing, balkan/arabic electronica, and dabke. Enjoy!
