Toubab Krewe

We are officially in our Pre-drive stage and ready to show you some of our thank you gifts for our fundraiser that begins October 21st and ends October 27th. Pre-drive means we are offering many of our gifts at a $20 discount for items like our new Crowd Around The Mic CD 22. It's an amazing compilation of many of our Studio B performances this year. We hope you like it - we do! You can go to wncw.org and click on donate to help listener-powered radio in its 29th year of being on the air.

Asheville's Toubab Krewe has their first album in nearly four years with “Stylo.” They played some tunes from it for us in a live session from the Ellington Underground last week. If you missed it, here's your chance to check out their amazing blend of West African and American Southern vibes. Plus, from the vaults, banjo master (and record label executive) Alison Brown, who played live in our studio back in 2006.

Toubab Krewe Live on Friday 4/20 around 4pm

It's been 8 long years since we had this much new material from Toubab Krewe, but their new release "Stylo" is worth the wait to fans of their unique blend of West African rhythm, West Coast surf, and other styles. They have two hometown album release shows Friday and Saturday at the Ellington Underground, and we hope to bring you a live interview/session from there on Friday afternoon!
