Beat the Rush: Bamako Airlines
Austin-based Afrocentric band Bamako Airlines is composed of nine veteran musicians who love the polyrhythmic, electric nature of 1970s’ era Afropop. Hints of jazz, Latin, rock, and Indian classical music permeate throughout their music. Exploring genres with roots 5,000 miles away, Bamako Airlines keeps Austin dancing!
Beat the Rush is a performance series that features live music inspired by visual art on view.
