Don’t Miss YISSY & Bandancha in NYC
You might not know her now, but I can bet that you will soon. Cuban composer and drummer, Yissy García, and her band are taking traditional Cuban music and intertwining it with elements of blues, jazz, hip-hop, and more, to create songs that will blow you away. Don’t just take my word for it, take Cubadisco’s word for it. Her ensemble won the award for Best New Artist at the Cubadisco Festival (Cuba’s version of the Grammys). YISSY & Bandancha are doing a six-show U.S. tour, of which New York City is lucky to be included in. Catch the performance at SOBs on Dec. 8.

Kaki King is partnering with Amy Rigby and the B-52’s Cindy Wilson to raise money for Planned Parenthood NYC on Dec. 6th at The Bell House.
