On Saturday, KMXT will present live in concert Toubab Krewe at the Fairgrounds, along with special guests, the Kodiak Island Drummers.
Toubab Krewe is a five-member band from North Carolina that fuses West African rhythms with American musical styles. Afro-Pop World Wide’s tongue-in-cheek description of their genre is “Afro-Cowboy-Ninja-Surf” music.
Jay Barrett spoke with one of the band’s percussionists, Luke Quaranta, right after they arrived in Homer for their Wednesday night show.
The gates open for the Toubab Krewe concert at the Kodiak State Fairgrounds at 5 o’clock on Saturday. Tickets are available here at the KMXT studio, at the Treasury and Treasury Home stores downtown, and from any member of the Kodiak Island Drummers.
There will be free shuttle buses running from the high school and the Harbormaster’s Office around 5 and 6 p.m., and will return a little after 10.
The Toubab Krewe concert is a production of KMXT.
