Atlas Soul and Timbila at Regattabar

Details

From the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/228347917297759/):

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!
