and the Soggy Po Boys
World Fusion Music pioneers, Randy Armstrong and Volker Nahrmann bring Beyond Borders to The Music Hall stage. The ensemble musicians hail from four continents featuring Jose Duque, ERINI, Charlie Jennison, Theo Ni Martey, Nick Phaneuf & Ben Cook. They perform on an astonishing array of over 50 instruments from around the world. Their electrifying blend of jazz and world music traditions take you on a global voyage, from the streets of Havana and Rio de Janeiro, the evocative traditions of India and the Middle East, to the romantic café and cinema music of France and Italy, the haunting sounds of the Native American pow wow, and the worldbeat rhythms of West Africa and the Caribbean. Their album, Beyond Borders was nominated by the ZMR Music Awards as, “Best World Album”.
Opening the Beyond Borders concert will be New England favorites, the talented Soggy Po Boys serving up their tasty blend of New Orleans style jazz mixed with brass-fueled old-school funk and spirituals featuring music from their album, All In Favor. With this many world-class musicians and special guest artists, who knows what will happen in this exhilarating and captivating evening of global music!
This event is co-produced by The Music Hall and David Wold Associates
