Acoustic Africa

The third installment of the popular Acoustic Africa tour focuses on the richness of the African traditions of the voice and song, featuring the continent’s up and coming vocal impresarios;

Dobet Gnahore, the Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer who has garnered a reputation as one of the most vibrant performers in world music; Ivory Coast bassist and vocalist Manou Gallo who has gained acclaim as the bassist for Zap Mama, whose own music draws on rhythms of West Africa as well as funk and R&B; and Kareyce Fotso, a young Cameroonian singer whose music is an intriguing combination of Afro-pop, Blues, and traditional African music.

Leni Stern, the American contemporary guitarist who gained increasingly wide acclaim since releasing four recordings of African influenced material, joins with musical direction. These exciting singers will be backed by an all-star band including Ivorians balafonist Aly Keita (Omar Sosa, Joe Zawinul).
