November 21: Chicago Afrobeat Project
This acclaimed Chicago-based world music ensemble blends Afrobeat, Afro-Cuban music, funk, jazz, juju music, and rock. The band's album Nyash UP! "is thick with politics and passion, and nearly boiling over with simmering funk," says a Rhapsody.com review. "But while fat, familiar low brass darts in and out, that's filtered through jazz, avant-R&B, lounge and hip-hop."
