OTHERsound: Librator, Cap Alan

  • Art In 1444 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

The OTHERsound series highlights various "world" musics and genre-defying, adventurous projects. The first two OTHERsound installments have featured dancehall artist Jimmy Sugarcane and experimental math-rock project Maratek, as well as a number of local artists including Asumaya (the project of Madison musician Luke Bassuener, who books the series) and Rob Lundberg. OTHERsound III features Gambian Afrobeat artist Librator. Currently based in Detroit, Librator writes catchy, rhythmic West African pop songs, often collaborating with various African producers, such as Rwanda's YangP on the track "Grace." Local duo Cap Alan play here as well with glitched-out processed drums and tangled, modular grooves. The night will also feature a fashion show from local clothing line African N American Fits. —Emili Earhart
