Toubab Krewe Live on Friday 4/20 around 4pm

15 hours ago

It's been 8 long years since we had this much new material from Toubab Krewe, but their new release "Stylo" is worth the wait to fans of their unique blend of West African rhythm, West Coast surf, and other styles. They have two hometown album release shows Friday and Saturday at the Ellington Underground, and we hope to bring you a live interview/session from there on Friday afternoon!
