CenterStage MN: Siama’s Congo
April 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $15
Feel good music from the Heart of Africa.
Congolese guitarman Siama Matuzungidi recorded hundreds of hits and toured the world with soukous greats until making Minneapolis home base. Siama’s picking style is legendary and his mbira (thumb piano) is positively transfixing. He and partner Dallas sing up a sweet storm and, along with authentic drum and belafon (a calabash marimba), they’ll take you back in time to the under-the-stars sounds of DR Congo and upbeat soukous of East African dance floors.
