BARCELONANS BLACK GANDHI LIVE AT RENOWNED WEBSTER HALL IN NYC
(Published: April 24, 2012)

New York, New York, April 24, 2012-Using Reggae as a launching point, in large part due to its uplifting message and infectious rhythms, Black Gandhi is a Barcelona, Spain based group of philosophically like-minded musical stylists who play a contemporary and joyous blend of Reggae, Ska, Soul, Rock, Folk and Blues for the 21st century. In support of their latest CD, Into Light, Black Gandhi will be performing live, in English, at the venerable Webster Hall in the East Village, NYC, at 7:00 PM on Friday, May 4, 2012. Contagiously rhythmic and seductively melodic with powerful lyrics of affirmation, Black Gandhi creates an aural canvass that is a glorious celebration of life, all exquisitely displayed on their U.S. debut CD, their second release worldwide, Into Light.

"Black Gandhi play a rootsy, folky style of Reggae. . . They're a tight band, they feel their music and . . . their melodies transcend the setting. . . Black Gandhi provide the fuel for a communal fire that is rarely seen . . ."
-Adam Ashcroft for Rolling Stone Magazine Middle East

At their show at Webster Hall Black Gandhi will be performing tunes in English from Into Light as well as songs from their previously released internationally successful CD, Joy. Inspired by pacifist leader Mahatma Gandhi and influenced by the traditions of black music, Black Gandhi's music expresses a simple yet eloquent message, that of living a life of joy and self-awareness. Although based in Barcelona, Black Gandhi is made up of individuals from various parts of the world who see themselves as more of a unified entity that eschews an over-emphasis on individuality, which they feel dilutes their conception of the band as a unified whole, the world community ethic they espouse and the music they create. From being competitively selected to play at the South by Southwest 2011 (SXSW '11) festival in Austin, Texas, to performing in festivals and concerts in Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and beyond, including significant sales of Joy in Japan, Black Gandhi has continued to dazzle and entrance music listeners with their celebratory, eclectic beat-a beat that makes you want to get up and dance!

". . . [An] uplifting, joyous live show . . ."-Global Souljah for Barcelona Valencia Connect

As good as Into Light is, Black Gandhi is an amazing live act that delivers a festive celebration of music and life, reminding us why we're compelled to come back to this transcendent, celebratory experience time and again.
