If there are no tickets available online, please come to the ticketing booth on the day of the event. There will be walk-up tickets available at the door beginning 1 hour before scheduled show time. While we can make no guarantees, we've been told that everyone who has walked up so far has gotten in to see the show. 

We understand there are many who aren't ready to venture out for this type of experience just yet so we're happy to be livestreaming the show. Watch from the comfort of your home on Facebook or YouTube!


Inspired by the traditional drum rhythms of Ghana, Kotoko Brass has created a unique, joyful, and improvisational style of West African dance music described by the Boston Globe as “propulsive, infectious party music.” The drums provide the heart and soul of Kotoko Brass—merging syncopated African percussion polyrhythms with hard-hitting dance grooves. New Orleans and West African inspired horns blend with guitar, keys, and bass to evoke classic African and Caribbean styles of highlife, afrobeat, and reggae. 

This performance is free so that people hit hardest by Covid-19 can attend. If you are able to donate, please do so generously. All donations received will keep Global Arts (a)Live and ensure we can continue to present outstanding international artists on stages across greater Boston and in living rooms across the world through our online programming.
