Atlas Soul and Timbila at Regattabar

From the Facebook event page (

A very special night featuring two unique band that sound like no one else!

TIMBILA blazes ecstatic African rock with an East Village edge. The trance of African spirit possession merges with the trance of free-spirited head-bangers. Surreal buzzing timbila, hypnotic dream melodies of mbira, stinging guitar.

TIMBILA is part of a new wave of world rock bands creating music without borders. In their sound, the trance of African spirit possession becomes one with the trance of free-spirited headbangers—all part of a rock ‘n’ roll stew that is melodious, lyrical, liberating, vibrating, fierce and free, and always danceable. The buzzing rhythmic attack of the Mozambican xylophone (timbila) and the hypnot
ic thrumming of Zimbabwean thumb piano (mbira) join with the sting of guitar in grooves that are deeply funky, and an alluring bed for vocals that are sweet, sassy and feminine, and harmonized in celestial English, Chopi and Shona. No other band in the world sounds like Timbila!

....and we all know about what Atlas Soul will bring :)

We will meet in the lobby at 7pm.

This will be an epic show, Atlas Soul show at 7:30pm, and Timbila show starts at 10pm. Combo tix available for $22 at:

    Apologies everyone, as the "meetup" portion did not go so well. I arrived late to the pre-event dinner, and the dinner went long, and did not finish until after 7:30pm, and so the plan to be in the lobby at 7 and meet everyone did not go well. Luckily Atlas Soul and Timbila rocked the house! Hope everyone at least had a good time at the performance. I will do better next time.

    Thank-you all for coming last night! It really means a lot to us to see you at the show and the awesome reception you gave us and our music. It is because of this kind of feedback that we keep doing what we do!
    We video taped and will have the show song by song available in 2 / 3 weeks.
