An Evening With Lo'jo And Kalu James says
Austin Angers Creative presents an evening with Lo'Jo, internationally recognized artists of Cinema el Mundo -- not just world music, but a world full of image, color, sound and story. Lo'Jo calls our Sister City of Angers, France home, and this two night event at Stay Gold will be their a special event on their Spring 2016 US Tour.

Joining Lo'Jo on their Saturday, April 16th performance is Austin-based artist Kalu James -- joining us to kick off his bi-monthly Stay Gold residency!

Advance tickets will be on sale shortly. Ticket price at door is $5 // Cover starts at 9PM. Don't miss your opportunity to see these incredible international artists in person!

Any attempt to define and categorize the Lo'Jo sound quickly degenerates into a fools errand.

"To describe Lo'Jo's music, we should think in both a dictionary of world beats and an encyclopedia of universal harmonies. Adjectives we can apply are variegated, shamanic, polyglot, epic. (It is the sence of) strolling through savannahs and deserts from rivers to oceans, to asphalt praries. There would be sunshine and dust clouds; the scents of rain, fire and spices -- the sounds and fanfare of festivals and celebrations." -- Philipe Barbot

Lo'Jo's musical DNA is so complex and intertwined that your only reward for trying to sequence it will only be frustration and sterile science. What matters is the living breathing whole. Lo’Jo sound like the harmony that the builders of Babel Towers sought but never found, like Nino Rota on a non- stop round the world ticket, like the antidote to globalisation’s reductive evils, like a hymn to variety, to the human circus in all its incarnations. To listen to one of their albums is to travel with the heart open, always fresh to bitter-sweet wonders, not possessing but praising, savouring everything along the way.

To understand and experience Kalu’s passion is to see him live where his spirit truly shines. Kalu and his band evoke infectious tunes that will have your mind thinking, lips singing, and foot tapping days after the show.

With a blend of Blues-Rock, Soul and African folk rhythm, Kalu James brings to the table emotive, genuine lyrics with his remarkably unique and unforgettable style of vocal delivery.
