Issyra Gallery at 300 Observer Highway in Hoboken is an amazing place, it must be seen to be believed, jam-packed - floor to ceiling - with traditional African art and contemporary art. (Photos at http://tiny.cc/africanhoboken.)

And as a special Memorial Day weekend treat, we're filling this spectacular space with fabulous live music! Join us at Issyra on Saturday May 26th from 6-9 pm in person - admission is free - or tune in live for (in this order):

- Virtuosic oud explorations by Brian Prunka

- Ancient texts brought to life by Echoes of Antiquity featuring accordionist / multi-instrumentalist Ismail Butera and percussionist Natalia Perlaza

- The avant-gyil stylings of Alfred Kpebsaane and Brittany Anjou's Ghanian Gyil Gala - a captivating coalescence of Ghanaian gyil (xylophone) and electronic keyboards (plus drums / percussion by Beza Gebre)

- And we're thrilled to wrap things up with acclaimed visiting Senegalese mbalax singer Oumar Ndiaye (pictured below) and friends Smokey Hormel , Issa Sow and Ngor Jallow.

Admission is free and we will be giving away free WFMU swag too so don't miss out, join us at Issyra tonight!
