by delarue

Editor’s note – this contest is now over. Congratulations to the five lucky winners!

History will be made on Saturday, March 9 when Tuareg desert band Terakaft make their US debut at Drom, 85 Ave. A between 5th and 6th Sts. and you can be part of it for free! A spinoff of the world’s most popular “world music” act, desert blues band Tinariwen, Terakaft have a similarly dusky, otherworldly sound and share band members with that group as well. New York Music Daily is giving away five pairs of tickets to the show. To win, be one of the first five to scroll down and click the “leave a comment” button at the bottom of this page, then just leave your name and email address. No purchase necessary, and your email won’t be shared with anybody. The concert is a triplebill with darkly lyrical French chanteuse Fredda opening the night at 7, Terakaft after that and then the wild, intense NY Gypsy All-Stars with clarinet god Ismail Lumanovski at around 11. If you’ve never been to Drom, you’re in for a treat: it’s a great date spot with low lights, plush surroundings, fantastic sound, good comfort food and drinks that are cheaper than you would expect at this kind of spot.
