Vibrant Asheville, NC-based instrumental powerhouse, Toubab Krewe, creates a sonic Pangaea that lustily swirls together rock, African traditions, jam sensibilities, international folk strains and more. While nearly impossible to put into any box, it takes only a few moments to realize in a very palpable way that one is face-to-face with a true original who recognizes no borders in a march towards a muscular, original, globally switched-on sound.
Playing nearly 2000 shows from 2005-2015 Toubab Krewe established itself as one of the most unique bands on the scene. The Krewe made regular appearances at Bonnaroo (3x), Jam Cruise (3x), High Sierra Music Festival (3x), Floyd Fest (3x), Wakarusa (2x), before taking an extended hiatus in 2015-16. The band is inspired and excited about its return to touring, and can’t wait to share the fruit of their recent studio efforts.
