Baloji's NYC Show Rescheduled - Free Show Tonight at the Shrine in Harlem

This week’s installment of The Embassy Ensemble Presents has been postponed until Sunday, January 16 due to the approaching blizzard. Unfortunately, Baloji will not have the opportunity to join on that date. The good news is he's performing for free tonight, 9PM, at the Shrine Bar in Harlem. Accompanied by Blitz the Ambassador and the Embassy Ensemble, Baloji tore the house down at Joe’s Pub last week so you do not want to miss this rare chance to see him perform in the States.


The show on Sunday will feature Blitz and the Embassy Ensemble along with special guests Les Nubians, and just added to the bill is Rich Medina.
