Submitted by Webmaster on February 23, 2020 - 11:02

Grammy-nominated, world-music supergroup Bokanté are coming to Joe's Pub next Sunday, March 1st. Check out their Strange Circles (2017) and What Heat (2018) albums on Spotify to get a taste of how wonderfully infectious and moving this music is. The band was formed by musician/composer Michael League, he of Grammy–winning, Texan–bred, New York–based instrumental jazz collective, Snarky Puppy. His new project collects epic players from five countries and four continents, different genders, races and generations "working in harmony, celebrating individuality." A band giving a voice to those that don't have voices, sharing their passion for life and justice through music. Vocalist Malika Tirolien sings in both French and Guadeloupean Creole, the language of her childhood home. Bokanté means "exchange." Make no mistake, this is world beat music for the masses.
