Something Bizarro going down at the Bridge

Bizarro – an original project strongly influenced by Afrobeat - plays Saturday

On Saturday, May 16, get ready for something different and downright groovy.

Afrobeat evolved as a combination of traditional Nigerian, Ghanaian music mixed with jazz, highlife and funk and became popular in Africa in the 1970s.

Recognizable around the world today, it continues to influence and inspire musicians from African and beyond with its deep sense of groove, fantastic polyrhythms, searing-hot improvisations.

For this Saturday’s show at the Bridge, Oscar Robles Diaz is on drumkit, and, with bassist Brittany Bowman and saxophonist Tony Morrison, they present Bizarro – an original project strongly influenced by Afrobeat.

Doors are 8 p.m. and admission is by donation. Donations of nutritious, non-perishable food items will also be accepted for the Comox Valley Food Bank.

The Bridge Lounge is at the foot of Fifth Street.
