Wednesday 2/18 The Afro Roots Sacred Music Festival has been celebrating the influence of African rhythms and traditional beats on modern sounds all around the world. It's clearly evident that no culture, from Tokyo to Havana, remains unmoved by the groove of the Afro-beat. And tonight's performance by Kailash and the Nag Champayonsproves the point. Kailash's Rajesh Bhandari fuses the sounds of Africa and electronica with the mystical elements of his native India. The band is part of the sound of Goa, a city on India's southwest coast. Goan pop music developed with the burgeoning club scene there. Because LSD is reportedly used more frequently there than Ecstasy, the sound swerves to the more mystical, trippy side of electronica. The Nag Champayons also blend the sounds of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. The global vibes begin around 9:00 p.m. at the Marlin Hotel, 1200 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Admission is seven dollars. Call 786-218-6854. (JCR)
