Rachid Taha + Krar Collective

Rachid Taha performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

Algerian rock and raï god Rachid Taha’s music embraces “heart-stopping break beats, flamenco guitar, African choruses, crunching hard rock and the inevitable sappy love song” (Japan Times)—every show seems to be a party the whole world is invited to. The colorful feast of mind-blowing grooves served up by Krar Collective has earned them the nickname “The Ethiopian White Stripes.”

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
