Barbès Presents:


Jose Conde

& His Nu Latin Groove Band


Gliding the line between Latin heritage and American storyteller traditions Jose Conde shimmies between such diverse sounds as American and Brazilian old school funk,  NYC dance beats, Afro-beat, reggae, Cuban son, and jam-band ballad while sliding poetically from universal themes of nature’s beauty to personal expressions of romantic longing and loss.  As he prepares to record his first solo album of new songs in the summer, Jose Conde will perform for the first time at Barbès in Brooklyn with his Nu Latin Groove band.  His new band includes Brazilian percussionist Ze Mauricio (chorro ensemble), drummer Gintas Janusonis (Anjelique Kidjo), guitarist Marko Pankovich (Sweetcane), bass player Jorge Bringas (Albita) and conga player Roman Diaz (Yoruba Andavo).  Suggested donations are $10. Check Repubic songstress Marta Topferova will be performing earlier in the evening.   Conde, had a year of acclaim in ‘08 for his records (R)Evolucion (Mr Bongo), and Baby Loves Salsa (Ropeadope), and his widely seen YouTube election hit “Respondele a Obama”.


Barbès is a bar and performance space located in the South Slope part of Brooklyn.

Barbès is also a neighborhood in northern Paris famous for its discount stores, its large North African population as well as the record stores which helped launch the Rai music explosion of the mid 80's.  Owned and operated by two French musicians and long-time Brooklyn residents, Barbès functions as a neighborhood community center of sorts.
