No Shushing Allowed! The library is alive with sounds.

This summer, Fresh City Life is hosting Beatwave: a Summer Music Series on Sunday afternoons in June and July.  We've tried hard to put together a group of diverse local musicians who will play tunes in tones you definitely haven't heard before. Take 2GVibe, the West African ensemble will be kicking off the series next Sunday June 6th from 2-3.

Koffi Toudji, the band leader, is a whirlwind of a man, with rhythm like rain and energy like the sun. I first met Koffi through the Cleo Parker Robinson African dance class, where he and his fellow drummers pound out rhythms for people of all ages and types to get down to (and Get Down they do). Koffi takes an athletic approach to drumming, as if it's a full body sport, and the drum is his accomplice. The 2GVibe set will certainly make the Central library buzz like it never has before, and I wouldn't be surprised if people started dancing in the stacks. It's close to impossible for your feet to ignore Koffi's drums- and that's why we booked him.
