O’s Notes: Duende Libre is a trio featuring producer Alex Chadsey (keyboards), Farko Dosumov (b) and Jeff “Bongo Busch (d, perc). The Dance She Spoke arrives amidst the global pandemic and it has a soothing effect on the crisis. Frank Anderson (vocals, perc) and Chava Mirel (vocals) broaden the trio’s music, a blend of jazz, R&B and heavily influenced by West African music (Mali, Guinea). The rhythms are contagious and resonate in your body and spirit. Our favorite tracks are “Dansa”, “N’gri” and “Mendiani” packing a 1-2-3 punch in the middle of the set!
