Migrant Sounds, Cultural Fusion

  • Lilypad Inman 1353 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)

$15 Cover / Start 5pm / Doors 4:30pm

An afternoon of gloriously global diaspora rock! Each band/artist has aunique vision of cultural fusion:

Boston's Awaaz Do serves up postcolonial rock and roll, featuring the sounds of South Asia from Bollywood to qawwali.

Philadelphia's Interminable is a diasporic space fusion project which brings together the afromestizo rhythms of son jarocho from Veracruz, Mexico, with that of jazz, rock, and electronic music

Chachi Carvalho is a first generation Cape Verdean American. He comes from a long lineage of musicians and singers. He has the keen ability to tap into various genres for inspiration while maintaining the true essence of what hip hop is supposed to sound like. He is a skilled emcee and energetic performer. He has an impressive resume and moves crowds whether he is reciting spoken word, backed by his DJ (DJ Therion) or accompanied by his band.
