KEXP In-Studio Video of the Week: Occidental Brothers Dance Band International

This week, we present another performance from our broadcast in Chicago at Engine Studios, where we filmed many of the bands who performed live for us. Reflecting the diversity of the music you’ll hear in the Windy City, we’re adding to the previous sessions we’ve made available with tail-draggin’ bluesman T-Model Ford and Chicago-based electronic group Pretty Good Dance Moves this session of bi-continental afro-pop from Occidental Brothers Dance Band International. The members of this ensemble include jazz-trained and rock-schooled American performers and traditionally trained Ghanaian musicians, and the combination can result in explosive dance parties at times and laid back grooving sets at others.

Read more about the band, including an exclusive interview, from our coverage in Chicago. If you want to listen to the entire session, it’s available as our current Live Performances podcast. (subscribe here).
