Toubab Krewe

Fiending for some cultural diversity this summer? Well, in the next few weeks there are some amazing African musicians from the Ivory Coast, Mali, Senegal, and Burkina Faso performing with Asheville musicians from Toubab Krewe and Zansa.

What started as a bunch of college buddies getting together to throw a Holiday party in a garage has grown into what some have called "The Best Dance Party in Asheville," and it's having a Summer Luau Edition.

The Ivory Coast government demolished the family home of local musician Adama Dembele and those of the entire area displacing hundreds with one week's notice.
