Transcontinental Rhythms at the Getty, Saturday 7/8, 6:00

Free, $7 parking. Link

Click here for sample music clips from Daby Toure, and here for clips from Janite & Olokun Prophesy.

I'm definitely starting my Saturday off early with this show. The Getty says they are presenting four different "masters of African rhythm." I never heard of any of them, but after watching a Daby Toure video (below), I'm sold. The other performers are Chris Berry and Panjea, Dub Lab Soundsystem, and Najite & Olokun Prophesy.

You are welcome to bring your own picnic in small containers, no alcohol, but you will be able to purchase food, wine and beer on site.

Here's the video from Toure:
