Next Show with Rupa & The April Fishes at the Bell House

Hot off the press!!! We continue our “Is America Part of the World?” series with Part Deux in November. Musical nomads Rupa & The April Fishes will join Nation Beat as we celebrate the American heritage from San Francisco to New York in Brooklyn at the Bell House.

Rupa & The April Fishes will be traveling to NY behind their new album “este mundo,” due out on Cumbancha on Oct. 27. The San Francisco-based musical agitators are specialists in crossing borders and building bridges, and on “este mundo” they effortlessly mix elements of Gypsy swing, Colombian cumbia, French chanson and Indian ragas to create a sound Time Out has called “global agit-pop.” Brooklyn based Nation Beat plays American music from both the North and South. They are rhythm gatherers, harvesting the fruit of 500 years of cultural cross-breeding from northeastern Brazil to the deep American South often breaking out into massive carnival parties at their live shows. Banning Eyre from Afropop Worldwide calls them “a revelation…the most original and alluring fusion band I’ve heard in years.”
