Road to FolkFest Presents KOBO TOWN
Doors Open 7pm/Show 8pm
The Grovedale House, 103 Park Street, Kingsville
An evening of music with KOBO TOWN and 4 Art Society Kingsville artists creating original art throughout the evening. Artwork will be auctioned off at the end of the night.
Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Towns music 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!) From their home in Toronto, the JUNO-nominated group has brought their distinct calypso-inspired sound to audiences across the world, from Port-of-Spain to Paris and from Montreal to Malaysia.
At once brooding and joyous, intensely poetic and highly danceable, Gonsalves' songs betray deep roots in Caribbean folk music, while the band delivers them with an indomitable energy that has earned them a considerable following far beyond the niche of world music enthusiasts and calypso fans.
