New Moon Folk Club presents Kobo Town on April 12, 2019 at 7:30pm at St Basil's Cultural Centre, 10819 71 Ave.

Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town’s 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!) At once intensely poetic and highly danceable, the music betrays deep roots in Caribbean folk music, and the band delivers with an indomitable energy. From their home in Toronto, the JUNO-winning group has brought their distinct calypso-inspired sound to audiences across the world.

Tickets are $25, plus applicable service fees. Children under 12 are free at the door.
