But the five-member outfit doesn't just settle for adding some authentic African instrumentation -- soku, kamel ngoni, and kora -- to its guitar, drum, and bass.
In fact, the Krewe takes fusion to an almost existential level, jamming out with African-American poet Umar Bin Hassan, trekking to Mali and other Mother Continent spots, and communing with the spirit of Ali Farka Touré.
This trip isn't a weekender. It an all-consuming, lifelong quest.
