Orquesta GarDel, Brand New Life 

When: Sat., July 21, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8-10

With "Rhythm Domination" serving as the title of this joint show, Orquesta GarDel and The Brand New Life have a right to feel cocky. The two powerhouse big bands—stoking Afro-Caribbean and West African grooves, respectively—have honed their game together on a recent tour. "This has been one of the best bills that The Brand New Life has been a part of because both bands have killer horn sections and huge rhythm sections with multiple percussionists, but stylistically play different music," says BNL bassist Seth Barden. Expect the unexpected, adds GarDel pianist Eric Hirsh, as the bands may trade out players throughout the night. Raleigh best batten down for this hurricane-strength dance party of Cuban timba and Senegalese mbalax, salsa and free jazz, merengue and Afrobeat. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
