African Dance music all night long!

October 17th, 2011

After all our festival gigs, please join us for our first Chicago club date in over a year as we return to Schubas on Friday October 28th! It’ll likely be the last local one in 2011, too, so please come on out.

We’re joined by our friends l’Orchestre Super-Vitesse who specialize in the music of the Manding bands of Guinee, Mali, and Senegal.

Also, as a special treat our Zambian friend Matthew Tembo will be sharing a couple of his tunes. Matthew just moved to town, and we’re looking forward to hearing more of his music!
