Kobo Town and Wesli

June 4 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm EDT

This concert was originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 14, 2021.

LINEUP CHANGE: Kobo Town has replaced Mokoomba.

Montreal-based Haitian musician Wesli won the 2019 Juno Award for Best World Music Album.

Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town’s music has been variously described as “an intoxicating blend of lilting calypsonian wit, dancehall reggae and trombone-heavy brass” (Guardian) and a “unique, transnational composite of rhythm, poetry and activist journalism.” (Exclaim!)
