All the Right Grooves
Weve noticed a pattern in world-music criticism these days, especially pieces penned by American audiophiles. Anytime an album from Africa is reviewed, the terms groove-oriented and polyrhythms appear, ad nauseam. Thats good and all, but can yall change it up a bit? Just a little? Thank you very much.
The Kawambe-Olawambe Drum and Dance Theater will create its own unique West African-inspired audio gumbo -- possibly with groove-oriented polyrhythms -- during the Callaloo Festival. The concert takes place in conjunction with the Callaloo: An African Arts Stew art exhibit.
