“One Minute, Please!” Bondeko Album Release Celebration
Location: 10 Mayo Street, Portland, Maine 04101, US
7:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Event website

Intercultural band Bondeko will be sharing the recording of their first album “One Minute Please!” with live music, film, art, and discussion.

Bondeko is the unlikely musical collaboration of an Albanian crooner and folklorist, a traditional Guinean drummer, and a French singer-songwriter. With only a few words of common language, their sound cannot exactly be described as world music as it belongs nowhere outside of the immigrant community of Portland, Maine… Their live shows are celebrations of the joy of sharing space with people from very different cultures.

Bondeko is proudly from Portland, Maine, proudly international, and proudly multigenerational!
