Yoshi’s nightclub in San Francisco has booked a trio of world music and jazz/pop acts for a Nov. 6 fundraiser to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Jacques Ibula, Tad Worku and Foxtails Brigade will perform in a show that kicks off 8 p.m. at the San Francisco club, 1330 Fillmore St. Tickets are $10; organizers say all proceeds will go to the Red Cross efforts to aid victims of the superstorm that slammed New York City, New Jersey and other portions of the East Coast last week.
Ibula, a Congolese singer-songwriter and activist, blends folk and Afro-pop styles into his songs that often deal with faith and the prolonged upheaval in his native country.
Foxtails Brigade is an eclectic San Francisco-based chamber pop outfit fronted by singer-guitarist Laura Weinbach and violinist Sivan Sadeh.
Northern California-based singer-songwriter-guitarist Worku’s breezy jazz/pop style and outsize talent has earned him comparisons to Michaelo Buble and Jason Mraz.
Tickets are available at 415-655-5600 or www.yoshis.com
