Yemen Blues is a super-energetic combo dedicated to updating Yemenite Jewish tradition. Afropop first heard the band at WOMEX 2010 in Copenhagen, but really saw what they could do when they hit Le Poisson Rouge in New York on March 9. With brass, strings, percussion, and one of the most kinetic frontmen we've seen in awhile, Yemen Blues not only packed the club, but kept it rocking from the first note to the last. The band's self-titled album is highly recommended. Here are a few of Banning Eyre's photos from the Poisson Rouge gig.
