Thanks you, friends for coming out to three great festivals this past weekend!  We’re big fans or all of them:

Madison, Wisconsin’s La Fete de Marquette: what a town, everyone on the festival grounds was dancing!  What a treat when the Kenyans started singing along with Vunja Mifupa and Malako Disco.

Chicago’s Folk & Roots Fest: a homecoming for the band.  Great to play for such a big, happy bunch!

Toronto’s AfroFest: thanks to Peter Toh and everyone from this great, international city!  A great place to watch the World Cup final, and then to bring the music…
