Well, you’ll get ONE of The Toubab Krewe’s songs. Shake it again, and these same pieces of musical inspiration will form a totally different song, while retaining their distinctive sound.

Toubab Krewe has been blending West African and American musical styles since early 2005 and has carved out a solid niche for themselves on jam-band and festival circuits. The Krewe is in Colorado this week for a six night run through the Rocky Mountains, fresh from Jam Cruise 10.
Toubab Krewe is throwing a festival and they want YOU there! David Pransky, bassist for TK, started Manifestivus on his family's land in Cabot, VT 9 years ago. And this year, he's sending a special invitation out to YOU to join him and the rest of TK for an amazing 2 days of music, culture and dancing.
With the third annual festival on the horizon, B.O.M.B. Fest is proud to announce it’s the full line up and two-day schedule HERE for the Memorial Day Weekend event (Saturday May 28th and Sunday May 29th) at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT.
