New Music and Textiles

Ultra Fine Mist Continuous Spray Bottles

We love these because they create a pressurized spray that is gentle on plant leaves (and great for the face in warm temperatures)! The plastic bladder inside the tube keeps the vacuum seal so that it can be held at any angle – yes, even upside down!

The spray is fine and steady, misting for a few seconds longer than each pump of the trigger. As an added bonus, they are also handy for those who love to iron, or those who simply spray wrinkled fabric and toss it back in the dryer for a few minutes! And – of course they look great decorated with our vinyl stickers…

Just Arrived

‘Tis the season of cool mornings and warm afternoons, calling for a bit of a wardrobe change or perhaps a new accessory. And, of course, Incahoots has you covered (figuratively and literally)!

Now in the shop you will find hangers full of beautiful new shrugs and cardigans, as well as fall scarves in various weights and textures to add a layer of both style and comfort. It’s like wearing a hug from your favorite shop (until it gets too warm and then you can ball it up and toss it in your bag for later)!

New Music: Afro-Cubano

African and Latin rhythms converge on this joyous musical adventure.

The songs on this collection come from many African diaspora countries: Cameroon, Congo, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Cabo Verde, Senegal, São Tomé & Príncipe, Suriname and Cuba. Separated by oceans, jungles or deserts, these countries are tied together by common history and cultural roots. While the personal stories of enslaved Africans in the Americas have mostly been lost to time, their saga lives on in the music that has echoed back and forth across the continents.

​The music of Cuba, with its distinct syncopated bass line, bubbling interlocking percussion and rhythmic call and response vocals, is the outcome of the collision of African and European cultures in the New World. When vinyl albums brought the first recordings of Cuban music back to Africa, it was like meeting a long-lost family member – one who had spent many years traveling the world and had many interesting new stories to tell.

We hope you enjoy this musical family reunion.
