Buraka Som Sistema @ Bowery Ballroom in May (more by Tim Griffin)
Buraka Som Sistema

Buraka Som Sistema will be back in NYC for a show on Wednesday, November 4th at (Le) Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale now.

If you're wondering what a BSS live show looks like, the pics from their May performance (read: insane party) at the Bowery Ballroom seem to capture the mood pretty well. In July, the group put out a free (for your e-mail address) mixtape titled Blood Diamond, of which they say "it's a different version of an album we would have made if clearing samples wasn't an issue." Their debut, Black Diamond, came out in the US in April of this year.

Videos, the mixtape tracklist and tour dates are below...
