[CANADABEAN KINGS] Indie rocker Danny Michel fled a frigid Ontario winter by heading south to Belize’s tropical warmth where, like many before him, he became enchanted with the bubbly Afro-Caribbean polyrhythms of the Garifuna people, descendants of African slaves who intermarried with the indigenous natives. The singer-songwriter returned often, traveling the region, absorbing its culture and music, then reinterpreting it with added tinges of reggae, West African and Cuban flavors. For his 10th album, Michel joined with some of the area’s finest musicians in search of the irresistible groove that propels new album Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me. The record follows the Paul Simon path while avoiding the danger of a forced musical marriage. Michel and the Collective will play separate sets, then join forces.
