Les Freres Kairaba 

When: Fri., July 6, 7-9 p.m. 2012
Price: Free, donations accepted

Bynum Front Porch brings West African funk to its family-friendly concert series with Les Freres Kairaba, a compact, but rambunctious, version of the band led by Carrboro griot Diali Cissokho. Lithe electric guitar lines, undulating backbeats and the sharp djembe drums complement Cissokho's intricate kora runs and soulful vocals. Cissokho is both a master and a maverick of this Senegalese gourd harp, charting the unexpected and pushing traditional Manding repertoire beyond its ancestral limits. The quartet will explore new material but keep the dance grooves just as visceral and hypnotic as Kairaba fans expect. Free/7 p.m. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
