    Small version of Leana Song to open.... Shawn, Chuki and Adwoa.... Terakaft (meaning "caravan" in Tamasheq) is a genuine desert rock band, sculpted by the pure searing air and the endless rolling sands of the Sahara. The stark, harsh conditions of the Sahara have permeated their wild riffs, and as a result Terakaft are the perfect embodiment of all that is wild and free in desert blues today. They have taken the electric guitar and made it their own. Terakaft was formed in 2001 by Sanou Ag Ahmed, then based in Kidal, Mali with Kedou Ag Ossad. Kedou was a member of the original line-up of Tinariwen (four of Kedou’s compositions are embodied on their first international release "The Radio Tisdas Sessions").

    WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14th DJ Lil’ Dave, Leana Song, and Leonard “Doc” Gibbs Lil’ Dave’s an Illvibe Collective mainstay who’s steeped in hip-hop, but that doesn’t mean he’s not well-versed in, from his bio, “house, broken beat, brazilia, acid jazz, funk and UK-inspired soul and rare groove.” Leana Song’s a Northern Liberties-born drum and music group inspired by Ghanaian and Afro-Cuban rhythms, but interpreted through American jazz and folk perspectives. Shawn Hennessey, the group’s ubertalented lead songwriter and percussionist, is also the brainchild behind Hennessey Bonfire, a world pop project. Then the freakin’ legendary Philly percussionist, Doc Gibbs—a decades-long veteran and Philadelphia funk ambassador around the globe—will blow minds. He got his name and start with the late great sax man Grover Washington, Jr. and has been employed by the likes of Erykah Badu, Eric Benet, Wyclef and Emeril Lagasse. (That’s right, the “Bam!” guy on the Food Network).
