DUB/FUNK | Barika 

The Vermont-based Barika is a powerful six-piece band with a soulful West African-inspired sound — and that hardly describes it. Previously an all instrumental band with booming horns and groovy guitar and keys, the group's leader, Craig Myers, decided Barika's new album needed a voice. "When The Time Comes" includes trance-y, rhythmic guest vocals by Kat Wright and Craig Mitchell, adding to the already funky dub-soundscape. Thunder Body's Matt O'Brian is also featured on the album's track "Sekou Blues," a track that will send goosebumps down your body. If you dig Big Mean Sound Machine and Rubblebucket, this band is definitely for you.

Barika performs with Blue Rootz on Saturday, January 27, at Funk 'N Waffles, 204 North Water Street. 9:30 p.m. $10. rochester.funknwaffles.com; barikamusic.com.
