Toubab Krewe Embarks on ‘What is Tour 2021’ – Perform at NuBlu on December 2

Toubab Krewe, the genre-defying quintet that fuses west-African traditional music with elements of rock, jam, and Appalachian styles, will continue it’s ‘What is Tour 2021’ on December 1 with a show in Wayne, PA at 118 North. The group will then head to Nublu 151 in NYC on December 2.   

Many of the dates are re-scheduled from a COVID postponed tour in April of 2020.  The band will film the PBS special ‘Echo Sessions’ in Asheville, NC in December, and then finish the year at the No Resolutions Festival in Branford, FL on December 30, headlined by Big Gigantic, Girl Talk, and others.

Formed in 2005, Toubab Krewe has tenaciously honed their craft through relentless touring and a fierce dedication to carving out something they can truly call their own.  The fruits of this hard work can be heard on their latest release, STYLO, (March 2nd, 2018).  What Justin Perkins (Kora, Kamelngoni, guitar, percussion), Terrence Houston (drumset), Drew Heller (guitar, organ), Justin Kimmel (bass, keys), and Luke Quaranta (Djembe, Congas, Dundun, Sangban, Kinkini) have wrought on STYLO reflects the many miles and musical journeys that have transpired since their last studio album, TK2.

All shows will require a COVID vaccination or negative PCR test to enter.
