Last night, jim and i went to the mandingo ambassadors
show in park slope and i HIGHLY recommend them. They play every wednesday, the room was packed, everyone was dancing, and it was worth the trek across the boros. trust me. it is so great hearing a music tradition so close to my own (haitian). i am so curious how it possibly was transported and sustained from africa. if it has common roots or that it was real time influence. one word for this crew. TIGHT. TIIIIIGGGHHHTTTT. Here is the gothamlist.
Note the comedy show listed. Looks GOOD.
