One hundred percent of ticket sales will be used to help reunite our friend, poet Fidel Nshombo, with his family.
Join us in a World Music Celebration to support our friend, poet Fidel Nshombo, in his efforts to bring his parents to the American Continent from Africa. Fidel’s family was separated in the first Congo war (read his story here boisetobukavu.org/ ). Fidel has worked tirelessly to help his family and others, and to educate and enlighten all of us with his poetry, writing, speaking, and his work as a Northwest Representative for The United Nations Refugee Congress. To know Fidel is to be changed – his message opens our eyes and changes our world for the better. This is our chance to support and celebrate Fidel and his work for our local community and for the world community.
Doors to The Sapphire Room will open at 6pm, with appetizers, dinner, and drinks available. The show will begin at 7pm with Tambalka, after which Fidel will treat us to his original poetry. The evening will finish with Dayo Ayodele and The Afrosonics. This promises to be an amazing night!
One hundred percent of ticket sales for this concert will be given to boisetobukavu.org to help reunite Fidel’s family.
Tambalka presents an intriguing blend of Rumba, Latin, Gypsy, and Mediterranean!
Since music is the universal language, it’s only fitting that AFROSONICS has chosen this medium to bring people with diverse musical influences together in the creation of an original music style. Audiences experience new vibes through a fusion of guitars, drums, percussion, keyboards, electronic soundscapes, vocals, dance and chants. Although most of the rhythms are of African and American origin, it’s tough to put a label on their sound. Afrosonics incorporates music from all over the world and the root of each member intermingles to create something both classic and unique.
