Our recent recommendations for The Jam Jar
Beirut’s most infamous crate-digger, Ernesto Chahoud has the rarest of rare groove and the most ethio-jazz smarts in the Middle East. Catch him fling psychedelic cumbia or euphoric tarab across the dancefloor like it was bread to the pigeons.
La Bomba presents Ernesto Chahoud at The Jam Jar
Freewheeling cultureclash orchestra traversing free jazz, post-punk highlife and minimalist classical with transcendental results. Think Sonic Youth + Glen Branca’s downtown NY guitar ensemble covering Fela Kuti and you’re not even close (maybe Sons of Kemet raiding the Philip Glass’ songbook is closer…but you’ll have to see for yourself).
Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp at The Jam Jar
A cross-cultural masterclass from Robert Plant + Jah Wobble journeyman Justin Adams and CGS vocalist/violinist/percussionist Mauro Durante. Expect everything from Delta blues to Maghreb trance to Puglian folk dance, seamlessly woven into meditative rhythms and primordial laments.
Global roots music: Saharan blues, Maghreb laments & uplifting Mediterranean folk dances
