I've been meaning to post pictures of a wonderful event I attended in Brooklyn in January. A house concert by Bonga (a.k.a Gaston Jean-Baptiste) and the Vodou Drums of Haiti! Yes, one of the musicians, our generous host Rufus Cappadocia, opened his home to concertgoers! Of course the event was word-of-mouth. Please see the fun for yourself on Flickr. They are a roots music band.
One of the evening's highlights was undoubtedly the songs featuring Indian singing over Haitian drums with Rufus Cappadocia's cello! Sadly, I only have visuals for this:
