First update this week. I think I finally let it sink in that there's more great gigs than I can post in one, or even two nights. I think the blogging curse finally got me- you have to do it daily, or else fall behind. Kind of like music practice... Anyway, one highlight is that the Festival Sundiata is this weekend at Seattle Center, and also the Seattle Brazilian contingent will be throwing a Choro Fest at the Royal Room. All of which adds up to a week of hella good music for y'all...so get your money maker out of the house and shake it to the sounds of great African and Brazilian (and Afro-Brazilian, for that matter) music.
