Sensational Afro-Fusion Band MOKOOMBA July 24

Serious fans of African popular music will not want to miss this band! – Claire

Zimfest Opening Night JULY 24 with MOKOOMBA
WHERE:
University of Puget Sound Schneebeck Hall – Tacoma
WHEN: 9:00 – 10:30 PM
TICKETS: $20 in advance, $24 at the door. Purchase stand-alone MOKOOMBA tickets from Brown Paper Tickets . Purchase tickets for MOKOOMBA and other Zimfest concerts and workshops: https://2014.zimfest.org/
DIRECTIONS: https://2014.zimfest.org/getting-to-zimfest/ Scroll down to “Music Building/Schneebeck (west side of UPS campus)”

Music from the cultural melting pot of Victoria Falls.

MOKOOMBA is on their first visit to North America this summer after making a name for themselves in Europe and Australia. The band of six young men hails from Victoria Falls, home to the Tonga people, and combines traditional and modern instruments with a rich blend of rhythms. Their vibrant sound, largely originating from spectacular lead vocalist Mathias Muzaza, draws on traditional Tonga music, and also embraces the diverse music cultures of southern Africa.

mokoomba-rising-tide-webReviews of MOKOOMBA’S latest CD, Rising Tide:
“Mokoomba is quite simply the most impressive band Zimbabwe has produced in recent memory. The sheer density of ideas in this session is impressive, but it never feels like the musicians are merely checking off stylistic boxes. This is an A+ international debut… In all, Mokoomba, riding their own rising tide, are the best news we have heard out of Zimbabwe in years.” (Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide, USA, August 2012)
