Toubab Krewe, Triple Fret 

When: Fri., Aug. 13, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $12-15

Toubab Krewe's improv-heavy jams stand out from those of festival circuit peers because these instrumentals come fused with African traditons. Indeed, the quintet has repeatedly traveled from the North Carolina mountains to the nation of Mali, where members collaborate with local virtuoso musicians and learn the techniques of traditional West African percussion and stringed instruments such as kora, soku and kamele n'goni. Toubab folds those tribal elements into more conventional jam band fare fueled by drum kit, electric guitar and bass, resulting in hypnotic, Afropop-tinged rock. Count on frenzied hand drum workouts that should carry well late into the night. With jazzy Durham jammers Mike Babyak's Triple Fret, featuring members of Barefoot Manner and Mosadi Music. —Spencer Griffith
