If Andrzej Pilarczyk’s rave review and enthralling photographs didn’t already make you wish that you’d been at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy for Taina Asili y La Banda Rebelde’s CD release party for “War Cry,” we’re sure that this video will. It’s their live performance of “Prison Break,” accompanied by vocalist Ayana Del Valle and trapeze artist Leah Penniman:
Asili and her band are currently in the midst of a month-long, coast-to-coast tour. But they’ll be back in town in time for an intimate duo show – featuring Asili and guitarist Gaetano Vaccaro – at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy at 12noon on Thursday, April 29. Admission is free.
