Anyone who has been following along with greenarrowradio knows that the Malian Blues and American rock-N-roll are things this host really enjoy. Even if they don’t appear during a set list for a short while, they are being listened to. So whenever Toubab Krewe are in town you know I’ll be there. This time around they presented their blend of West African influences and kicking homegrown in North Carolina rock-N-roll at the Majestic Theater and they brought it along with a brand new live album out on Upstream Records. “Live at the Orange Peel” really captures the live performance as I have seen it on a several stages and I was just as impressed with the new album as I was with the live show. The live show provides several opportunities to lose yourself in sounds that are foreign and familiar simultaneously, which really causes some interesting body movements to the danceable grooves. The guys rock by the way. When the great American rock-N-roll kicks in it usually is at a steady beat of sound propulsion really pumping a crowd up…..My recommendation is to go out and catch them live and if they aren’t nearby…have no fears…the new live album is waiting to come home with you.
