Brazilian Tropicália trailblazers Os Mutantes, whose psychedelic collision of The Beatles, John Cage, and Bossa Nova is “pop at its very best and most innovative,” (SPIN) headline a proper airing of the storied label Luaka Bop, founded by David Byrne and devoted to dance music of any denomination from across the globe. Javelin brings a sound collage “like an otherworldly radio station based in some crate-digger bunker where genre distinctions are a distant memory” (Pitchfork) to the party, and the Sierra Leonean Janka Nabay, the undisputed king of Bubu music, starts things off on a festive, frenetic note.
