Win Tix To Kora-Rap Outfit Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate Live In NYC!

Enter to win a pair of tickets to catch kora-rap outfit Joe Driscoll and Sekou Kouyate live at SOBs in NYC, Monday, July 7th.


Kora-rap outfit Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate hit our radar earlier this year with their debut full length Faya, a record that fused New York-born beatboxer/songwriter Driscoll and Guinean Kouyate's respective hip-hop and griot traditions. The duo are set to kick off their first North American tour this month, and we're giving away a pair of tickets to see them live in NYC at SOB's on Monday, July 7th.

To enter to win, all you'll need to do is share this photo on facebook. We'll select and notify a winner this Friday, July 4th.
