9:00 pm-Lo’Jo (2013): French masters of North African-and French grooves, with delicate songwriting and powerful vocals
10:00 pm-Imharhan Timbuktu (gF debut): The Sahara blues, rock and trance of this of this rising Tuareg band from Northern Mali brings the mystery of the desert to new audiences who first encountered the music via Tinariwen.
11:00 pm-Sergio Mendoza y La Orkesta (2014): Bringing a punk rock intensity to old-school mambo, Mexican cumbia, and a quirky big-band sound that would make Esquivel grin, from a longtime associate of Calexico and Devotchka.
12:00 pm-Hot 8 Brass Band (2009): New Orleans second-line hotshots play fierce and free (Basement Jaxx recruited them for several tracks) while remaining deeply rooted in their city’s storied jazz and funk heritage.
1:00 am-K i T (Kuenta i Tambú) (2014): Afro-Caribbean carnival drums from the Dutch Antilles with a serious global bass remix
