March Residency: Chócala, Tal National, DJ Kato

When: Wed., March 21, 9 p.m. 2018

One of the more exciting bands to come out of West Africa this millennium, Tal National performs a dizzying mix of traditional Afrobeat and African highlife infused with raw, blues-rock guitar excursions over crazy polyrhythms. There’s no way you can stand still during performances of songs like the title track of the band’s latest album, Tantabara, or grooving to the fuzzed-out solo on “Entente,” or marveling at the spindly guitars of “Akokas.” This must-see show, part of Chócala’s Snug residency throughout March, also features AfroPop’s DJ Kato.

Price: $5
