The Arcata Playhouse has the Fula Brothers tonight at 7:30 p.m. ($25, $20 advance). Fronted by Malian hunter's harp player Mamadou Sidibe, this trio plays danceable tunes on acoustic instruments with a sensibility that spans the old and the new worlds of West African music. Sarah Nutting and Kariska Longaker make up the opening duo MaMuse, and they use the upright bass, mandolins, flutes, guitars and ukes to weave folky hobo-esque ragas and travelling tunes.
