Saturday SXSW Showcases

Dubioza Kolektiv

Sounds From the World

8pm, Russian House

Austin's first and only Russian restaurant features music from around the world all week. Tonight's lineup comes up equally diverse and filled with music that might be familiar yet from unexpected locations. Kim Ban Jang/Windy City starts things off with surprisingly authentic reggae, African beats, and Latin rhythms coming from an unlikely part of the world – South Korea. Indonesia-based sextet Shaggydog also produces bona fide reggae and ska beats, while being socially conscious ambassadors of the "Dogs Are Not Food" campaign. From Rio de Janeiro, internationally recognized jazz composer and vocalist Clara Valente successfully mixes Latin rhythms, Afrobeat, and electronics into a heady, danceable whole. Austrian accordion player Hubert von Goisern really brings Americana back to its roots with his earnest blend of country, rock, and soul. Among the most popular live acts in eastern Europe, Bosnia's Dubioza Kolektiv are politically active in their country's fight for social change as well as being one of the most dynamic rock and reggae acts in the world.
