A national treasure in Zimbabwe, Oliver Mtukudzi is one of the most successful African recording artists in North America. Inspired by the hypnotic rhythms of the mbira (thumb piano), his music also incorporates South African mbaqanga, the energetic Zimbabwean pop style jit, and the traditional kateke drumming of his clan.
Local faves Wagogo will open the show with their own blend of New Mexican infused Zimbabwean music.
This will be one of the best African shows of the year, in a very dance-friendly space.
