Trouble Worldwide and Barbès Records present an APAP showcase with Non Stop Bhangra, Very Be Careful, Razia, International Body Music, Sanda Weigl and a Surprise Special Guest.
Here comes trouble, indeed. Forward-thinking San Francisco agency Trouble Worldwide and the worldly New York label Barbès Records have teamed up for the third annual Here Comes Trouble showcase to present six groups that leap borders and continents with a single musical bound at 92YTribeca. A Bhangra dance party closes the night. APAP badgeholders welcome!
8pm - Sanda Weigl
Singing songs she learned as a child with effortless flair (she has family ties to Bertolt Brecht and long career in German theater, after all), Sanda Weigl creates a fresh approach—right down to her all-Japanese band—to Romanian Gypsy gems thanks to her polished yet vulnerable voice.
"...a Tom Waits-bred cross between Cape Verdean Chanteuse Cesaria Evora and German vocal visionary Dagmar Krause, Sanda draws from her Romanian Gypsy heritage…" -Union-Tribune San Diego
8:45pm - Razia
Singer and songwriter Razia Said's nomadic life has taken her across Africa to France, Italy, Ibiza, Bali and New York City, but despite these wanderings, her heart and soul remain inexorably tethered to Madagascar, the land of her birth.
9:30pm - International Body Music Festival
Music you can see, dance you can hear. Evocative and visceral, the International Body Music Festival concert explores the sonic possibilities of the human instrument with an amazing roster of artists from the Americas.
10:15pm - Surprise special guest from Canada
Hailing from Montreal, Canada, this singer-songwriter is a unique indie-pop blend of American folk and old Jamaican rocksteady, with a vintage 50's feel.
11pm - Very be Careful
A Caribbean soul and a California heart have sustained a decade of ceaseless romp-downs and raucous times for L.A.’s vallenato veteranos Very Be Careful, inciting tens of thousands of men, women, children and even some wild animals, to boogie to the Colombian coastal beat.
11:45pm - Non Stop Bhangra
Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub—swirling colors, the rhythm of pounding feet and the relentless energy of brilliant beats.
