Barbès is a small Brooklyn club which has been presenting music on a daily basis for now 15 years. Started on a shoestring budget in a former barber shop in the South Slope, Barbès has for years acted as a kind of laboratory for all different kinds of new projects and become a true community hub.
They’re in the hole $70,000K and have turned to the community for support. The community has answered back in a big way. You can join the movement and find about a great benefit concert here.
We hang with Olivier Conan at Barbes and hear tracks from Chicha Libre, Chicha libre’s Canibalismo Las Rubias del Norte Panamericana and Miramar.
