Fools Gold + Tinashe Live

Fools Gold

We had Fools Gold play back in January. It was one of those shows where you stare at the stage with a great big grin and then you dance and then you wander out remembering how music is pretty amazing sometimes, isn't it?
"Fool's Gold is sort of like a musical Benneton Ad. Drawing influences from all over the globe, including (but not limited to) Ethiopian soul, Cuban conga, and Brazilian funk, Fool’s Gold isn’t your pony-tailed step-dad’s world music (no didgeridoos here), nor is it your typical sampling and remixing (not that we’re mad at that, Diplo). The point is this isn’t cultural appropriation; it is musical appreciation. The twelve members of this band are not African, but they are diverse and talented, amongst them a Ghana-trained percussion leader (Orpheo McCord), an Argentine pop star (Erica Garcia) and members of several other lauded LA bands (including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Foreign Born, and We Are Scientists). Fool’s Gold is ultimately fusion music, but in this case, (unlike with mango salsa) that’s not such a bad thing."
