Orchestra Gold+Joseph's Bones @ Ashkenaz (Berkeley)

Location image of event venue


Two of Bay Area's most phenomenal ensembles of top-notch musicians
bring the sounds of Africa and the African Diaspora in one evening.

Orchestra Gold:
Led by the ferocious Mariam Diakité from Bamako, hypnotizes audiences with danceable, funky, high-energy music from Mali. These roots are colored by tinges of 60's era analog psychedelic rock and funk from West Africa.

Their songs contain inspiration, wisdom, and deep insight into the human condition. They have served to uplift Malians beyond the harsh realities of daily life. Especially in this time of social turbulence, this age-old wisdom brings us a renewed perspective on modern-day existence.

Joseph's Bones:
Featuring 14 of the Bay Area's best musicians, Joseph's Bones draws inspiration from the roots reggae of Bob Marley and the Wailers, the dub sounds of King Tubby and the soaring horn lines the of Skatalites. This instrumental group brings the electronic sound-transformation processes of Jamaican dub to an acoustic setting.
