Toubab Krewe

What happens when the beats of Mali meet up with the sounds of the American south?? Toubab Krewe is what happens! I love that even their name sticks to the mash up with Toubab meaning "foreign" and "Krewe" being a New Orleans spelling of the word "crew" - Foreign Crew! This North Carolina based group has been traveling back and forth to West Africa over the past 6 years, each time jamming with local artists, collaborating on new beats and then bringing those sounds right back here to share the joy.
