Got a white handkerchief to wave? What about a jawbone, to rattle? Most important: are you ready to dance?
Don’t worry about the jawbone, if you don’t have one the band certainly will. But bring your hankie if you have one, and DO wear dancing shoes.
The first annual Summer Global Music Voyage kicks off tomorrow night at Higher Ground in Burlington – featuring a returning favorite, Peru’s hot Afro-groove band Novalima.
Their first time visiting the area was in July two years ago and they were instantly the buzz for their energy, emotion, and powerful vocals. Visually they’re really interesting too with turntables, cajons (large, speaker-like drums the players actually sit on) and – yes – that large donkey jawbone, all thumping and rattling up a storm on stage.
Here are a few pics from that Burlington debut two years ago. And if you don’t have your tickets yet for tomorrow night I’ll make it official here and say: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
