I went to see Baaba Maal at the Sommerville theater last night. It was absolutely incredible. I first heard his music on Napster 2, but I had no idea what the live performance would be like. It was extremely up-beat; I think I worked off 1,000 calories just watching it! They did some amazing dances and dueling (between a drummer and vocalist), and they really got the audience involved in the music. It was quite improvisational, and a few audience members joined them on stage for a short bit of dancing and music-making. Overall, I enjoyed it immensely, and I highly recommend seeing his band if they're playing locally.
