Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba, Caique Vidal & Batuque 

When: Fri., June 30, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $15-$17

We're getting into the most sweltering parts of summer in the Triangle, when even a quick run to the mailbox can leave you sweaty and feeling smothered by the humidity. But Friday night brings a much better occasion to get sweaty in Saxapahaw with a killer double bill. Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba is a longtime Triangle institution led by Cissokho, a Senegalese kora player who laces traditional West African music traditions with contemporary rock sounds. Its music is warm and upbeat, often with some extra positivity thrown in for good measure—"Teeriyaa," for example, is an enthusiastic celebration of friendship. Coheadliner Caique Vidal & Batuque leans more into Afro-Brazilian styles, bolstering heart-racing percussion with squealing, ebullient horn sections. Together, the bands make for a magnificent opportunity to expand your musical horizons while dancing your troubles away. —Allison Hussey
