Diblo Dibala+Cruz LA


Notes cascade like quicksilver from the fingers of Diblo Dibala, a/k/a “Machine Gun,” who revved up the Congo’s soukous guitar style into high gear with his former band, Loketo, and later with Matchatcha. With any luck, he’ll share the stage at some point with openers Cruz LA, a young Brooklyn octet led by slithery keyboardist Maestro Scooby; they specialize in simmering Haitian konpas.
