Michael Mwenso & The Shakes (JAZZ / FUNK / SOUL)

Live Music

April 9, 2019

Weis Center for the Performing Arts

 

Whether fulfilling the role of vocalist, emcee, showman or impresario, Michael Mwenso conveys both the sophistication and spontaneity of hard-core jazz and the music’s folkloric roots with impeccable craft, creativity and communicative flair. Mwenso and the Shakes are a unique troupe of global artists who present music that merges the highest form of entertainment and artistry, while commanding a formidable timeline of jazz and blues expression through African and Afro American music. Hailing from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village in New York City, Madagascar, France, Jamaica and Hawaii, the members of The Shakes now call Harlem, N.Y., their home.

Tuesday, April 9, 7:30 p.m., Weis Center Atrium FREE! Tickets not required.
