WASHINGTON, D.C. - This weekend's Opening Act features The Beat Fairy.  They are performing at Sotto in Northwest, D.C.

The Beat Fairy embodies musical rediscovery. To uncover an old tune and rebirth it into a new groove founded upon ancient rhythms. Led by singer Sunny Jolie, the band swings into folk traditional, jazz standards, and whimsical originals with an undercurrent of Malian, Ghanaian, and Nigerian rhythms as well as modern vamping and electronic effects.

This Afro-influenced band seeks to be a tapestry of sonic ideas woven together to create an earthier jazz, a folkier blues, and a uniquely Beat-Fairy sound.
