Apap: Barbès & Electric Cowbell Present Secret Planet

View Website

For the 9th year, Barbès Records and Electric Cowbell Records present a Manhattan showcase timed to coincide with the APAP conference. APAP is an annual rite that, every January, brings musicians from around the world to New York. This year's Secret Planet's lineup continues our tradition of showcasing new talent unlikely to remain secret for very long.

This year's edition includes artists playing their own version of music from South Africa, Niger, Turkey, Lebanon, Cuba, Greece, Peru - and New York. Because it seems more and more apparent that New York really is its own country.

And don't be dazzled by the geographical diversity - if one thing these musicians have in common is being from various part of the planet, the other thing they have in common is a creative impulse never impeded by stylistic or geographical boundaries. Music of the world is not always world music.
