THE HOT 8 BRASS BAND
Marina and the Dreamboats
The members of the Hot 8 were all born and raised in New Orleans; many of them began playing together in high school. In 1995 they came together and began playing traditional New Orleans brass band music professionally. The Hot 8 are famous for playing all day in the sun, then hopping to a club gig and playing through the night. But even more than their boundless energy, what makes the Hot 8 special are the sounds they coax from their well-loved, well-worn horns.
Featured on CNN, Nightline, in the New York Times, and most notably in Spike Lee’s Katrina documentary “When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts”, Hot 8’s work with the Finding Our Folk Tour has brought music to evacuee shelters, temporary trailer parks, and to communities throughout the US that have provided a temporary home to displaced New Orleanians.

Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist. He began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s, as the city suffered post-industrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971. These compositions went unnoticed in the U.S.
In the mid-1970s, his music gained airplay in Australia and New Zealand and he toured the area finding limited success as an overseas performer and was unaware that he had reached legendary folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa. South African anti-Apartheid activists and musicians alike were inspired by his counterculture lyrics.
In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, “Searching for Sugar Man,” which has given Rodríguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. and his music is now reaching audiences worldwide.

LA INEDITA (Peru)
The Highlife Band
plus Authentic Peruvian food by Don Lucho’s
When we talk about La Inedita, we are talking about a Peruvian band, which was formed in Lima in 2010. What makes this band so unique is the music mix of dancehall, hip hop, rapping and Chicha (a Peruvian cumbia style).
Bang Data is formed by Bay Area’s MC Deuce Eclipse on lead vocals, who’s well known by hip-hop fans as an accompanying voice to the legendary Zion I and musician/producer Juan Manuel Caipo who has become a sought out name producing & mixing in the San Francisco music scene and abroad. Their self-titled single “Bang Data” from their debut album La Sopa was featured on on AMC’s Emmy® Award winning television drama Breaking Bad.
THE HIGHLIFE BAND
An authentic and unique world reggae music band from Seattle, Washington. Rhythms from the French Caribbean and West Africa are combined with Jamaican rockers, bif-baf, steppers, one-drop, and dancehall reggae traditions.

8:00pm | Doors at 6:30pm
Featuring: The Debaucherauntes, Jinta-la-Mvta (Tokyo, Japan) and Malke & The Boychiks
The Debaucherauntes: This brand of klezmer fusion includes re-imaginings of Yiddishe theatre, wild/powerful instrumental klez fused with other styles as diverse as hiphop and Mahler, klez flavored covers, whiskey-soaked singalongs, raunchy story ballads, & heart-wrenching Niggunim. Debaucherous, dancey, filled with great solos, we challenge you to leave shows without sore feet, a sore throat, a salacious smile, & a full heart.
Jinta-la-Mvta is a Tokyo-based band founded in 2004 by Ohkuma Wataru(clarinet) & Kogure Miwazow(chin-don drum,vo). Ohkuma is one of the most unique clarinet player in Japan and the bandleader of the groundbreaking Japanese experimental band Cicala Mvta, which has been hailed as “the epicenter of the Tokyo underground scene” and “uniquely Japanese world music.” With the Japanese street music chindon and jinta as its backbone, the band omnivorously cooks up street musics from around the world, from klezmer to Balkan music and original tunes. Since the Great Northeast Japan Earthquake and the subsequent nuclear crises in 2011, the band started to perform not only on club stages and festivals but also at anti-nuclear protests and demonstrations on the streets of Tokyo, attracting a new and wide range of audiences and fans.
