Digital Stage

In 2004, émigré Trinidadian-Canadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves founded the roots-rock calypso group Kobo Town. His music for the band has been variously described as “an intoxicating blend of lilting calypsonian wit, dancehall reggae and trombone-heavy brass” (Guardian) and a “unique, transnational composite of rhythm, poetry and activist journalism.”(Exclaim!)

Now Gonsalves joins us for a poignant performance. At once brooding and joyous, intensely poetic and highly danceable, Gonsalves’ songs betray deep roots in Caribbean folk music.

This program will be available to purchase and watch/rewatch until 6/10.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle
