Presenting at 8, 9, and 10 PM, Preservation Hall Jazz Band with special guests Tribu Baharú.


At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, it’s crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. Nowhere is that idea more vividly embodied than in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history.


TRIBU BAHARÚ is an afro-champeta music crew from the Colombian caribbean coast. Champeta music has been denigrated and damned, boycotted and banned, but it can never be stopped: champeta, the ever evolving, high-energy hybrid of Colombian, African and Afro-Caribbean styles just keeps on coming. And leading a new charge are Tribu Baharú, barrelling out of Bogotá, championing their version of champeta, inspired by the legendary, street-shaking Picó sound-systems of Colombia's Caribbean coast, but here played all-live-onstage with sparkling Congolese guitar driven by high-speed bass and drums and the all-animating upfront singers. Tribu Baharú is part of a wave of Nuevas Músicas Colombianas based in the capital city that are reestablishing it as a prime force and adding more ingredients to the recipe.


Nowadays Tribu Baharú transmits not only positive messages but also wants to maintain alive the memory of their ancestors through singing about their culture and implementing their street dialects and Palenquero (Language Spoken in the First free Village of America, San Basilio de Palenque, Colombia, Caribbean.
