Carnival Music from Haiti

Wed Jul 11 - Thu Jul 12, 2012 Sogetsu Hall

Time Out says

The inaugural Tokyo Festival of Intangible Culture gets off to a raucous start with a pair of concerts by Haiti's Raram No Limit, a carnival band whose raw, almost trance-like grooves are likely to appeal to fans of Congolese junk percussionists Konono No 1. Too bad that they're playing in the staid confines of Sogetsu Hall rather than Yoyogi Park, but we suspect they'll manage to get a chunk of the audience dancing all the same.


Open July 11-12

Time Doors 6.30pm. Gig 7pm

Admission Adults ¥6,500, students ¥3,500

Venue Sogetsu Hall

Address B1F 7-2-21 Akasaka, Minato, Tokyo

Transport Aoyama-itchome station (Tokyo Metro Hanzomon/Ginza Lines) or Akasaka-mitsuke station (Tokyo Metro Ginza/Marunouchi Lines)
