[AFRAUXBEAT] Asheville, N.C., quintet Toubab Krewe takes its name from a West African term for white foreigners, and it’s an apt moniker for a band comprising jammers whose sound is like a hybridized sonic tour of the continent. It also sometimes results in a cultural identity crisis. The largely instrumental band is at its best when it rocks a percussion-driven rock sound prodded along by kora, fiddle and other seemingly mismatched instruments to craft a mix of rock, folk, country and Afrobeat of the Malian variety. But ventures into reggae and overlong jammery often derail the sound. Still, when the band’s firing on all cylinders, it’s a trip definitely worth taking.
