Non-C: BOI AKIH with Sandip Bhattacharya, Lula Lounge – Wed Jul 7

Our non-Cuban choice upcoming:  The band Boi Akih represents a musical movement in which diverse styles from such places as India, Africa, Europe and the Moluccan Islands melt together with jazz. Singer Monica Akihary and composer/guitarist Niels Brouwer characterise the essence of Boi Akih in an ensemble of song and composition. In search of their musical boundaries they challenge and at the same time complement one another. Akihari sings not only in English but also in her native language: the language of the Moluccan island Haruku.
