What do you get when you combine Jamband with Afropop? Toubab Krew!. The band's debut is surprisingly satisfying. It is surprising considering the lukewarm results from so many similarly minded cross-cultural hybrids. From the African side, there's the Ali Farka Toure style Desert Blues along with indigenous instruments that include a plethora of stringed instruments and drums. On the Jamband side, the music echoes the guitar driven sounds of Ali Baba's Tahini and Lotus. With the absence of singing, the improvisation has to be strong to keep such a ship afloat and it cruises in style. While the ingredients may be familiar, Toubab Krewe cooks up a stew that is pleasantly original and unusually compelling. The band isn't composed of a bunch of neo-hippies who enjoyed drum circles enough to take it up to the next level. These musicians lived in Africa studying the music - "Toubab Krewe" makes this training evident. The band beautifully combines instrumental psychedelia with West African vibrations in a way that simultaneously feels authentic and sounds accessible. The accomplishment is similar to Outback's climactic "Dance the Devil Away." In addition to performing an exhilarating live show, Toubab Krewe's freshman release proves that they can shine in the studio with their inspiring brand of Jamband Afropop.This album will keep you entertained while you are waiting for these guys to come to your town. The recordings are great, but I recommend seeing them live whenever you get the chance!

TK2 is a logical progression for the band. This album represents a solid effort on the bands part to incorporate more rich texture in to their music. It draws from the african roots and jam sound they established over the past few years. The songs on this album are in general a slight departure from some of their original african sound. This album incorporates some southern rock and blues as well as duane eddy like surfer twang. The music paints a rich and deep tone. This album does not disappoint. It is just a little different than what they used to play. That's not to say the african influence is missing. Its that they have mixed it with other influences like a rich and tasty stew ready to eat with no other spices needed. I like the album a lot and I look forward to seeing the band extend their reach further and still maintain their original sound and roots. This band cooks and I'm ready for dinner. See them live on tour in a city near you, at Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury Michigan 6/30/ - 7/3/2011 and at All Good Music Festival 7/14 - 7/17/2011

Toubab Krewe is an American instrumental band which fuses the music of Mali with American musical styles (particularly those of the Southern United States). The group's instrumentation includes kora (21-string harp-lute), kamelengoni (12-string harp-lute), soku (Malian horsehair fiddle), two electric guitars, electric bass guitar, drum set, and African percussion. The group, which is based in Asheville, North Carolina, was founded in early 2005 and has traveled to West Africa several times, working with local musicians. The band released their self-titled debut album in 2005, which was recorded by Steven Heller at Upstream Records in Asheville, North Carolina. The band released their second album "TK2" on September 7, 2010 on the Nat Geo Music label.
In several West African languages, including Bambara and Wolof, Toubab means "foreigner." "Krewe" is a reference to the New Orleans region's spelling of the word "Crew."
This album is hands down there best working and they are continually growing! Cant wait to see you guys again in concert!1!

TK2 is a great album. It is instrumental and utilizes many sounds, some you may recognize and others you may not. They mix an African sound, they acquired by spending alot of time there, with an amazingly talented guitar sound. From islandy guitar sounds to strong percussion and everything in between, TK2 is sure to put a smile on your face and some pep in your step. My hands-down favorite song on the album is Sirens. They mix the African sounds they are so good at with an incredible blues feel, then about halfway through the blues takes over completely. This is a great album with an extremely unique sound, it is well worth checking out. Enjoy.

Toubab Krewe has been one of my favorite bands since I discovered them in 2008. I bought their new album TK2 the day it came out, and have been listening to it ever since. Every track is great, unique, mellow, inspiring, and fun to jam to. I play this music anywhere and everywhere, since it has no lyrics it is great at any time! I can't wait for the next album to come out, until then I will be jammin to TK2 as it never gets old! All of their music is great, the live recordings too. Definitely check out Live at the Orange Peel if you are looking for other albums. Enjoy!

If you love hand drums and the sweet sounds of strings, you will love this CD! I can't help but be engulfed in their ethnic and cultural beats and rhythms. Every song is something new. They explore sounds you cannot hear with any other band. Never heard a Toubab CD or song I didn't like, and this is no exception. Of course the recordings don't compare to their live shows! I highly recommend checking out one of thier upcoming shows this spring!! You will leave with a smile on your face!
