Aki Kumar & Alabama Mike “Mississippi Masala Blues”

Mississippi Masala Blues is the rare pairing of two world-class blues artists – Aki Kumar and Alabama Mike – Bay Area-based Blues pioneers who are constantly pushing the genre in new and unique directions.

Aki Kumar has made big waves worldwide with his “Bollywood Blues” sound – a genre-bending experiment that blends retro Indian music with the blues. Alabama Mike, “the future of the blues,” is a hard-driving Chicago-style blues singer who upsets the status quo of the genre with his vibrant new approach to the music, making it refreshingly relevant to life in the the 21st century.

This not-to-be missed event also features Kumar’s stellar Bollywood Blues band, comprised of the SF Bay Area’s finest blues musicians.
