Plus Roots+Wires Presents...a special performance by
JAGWA MUSIC from Tanzania

STARTS: 6PM / Entry by *contribution* to help KNCE buy a new mixing board

Speed, heat, and swagger. Tanzania's 7-piece Jagwa Music bangs out a hard-won celebration as screaming hot as a jet engine, owing little to the West but a few repurposed musical props. Keys shimmy over the interlocking rumble of drums as tough-edged vocals through the middle. "The concept sounds like it could be next-level hipster experimentalism: a band that makes music exclusively on percussion and miniature Casio keyboards wired through megaphones. But those are the exact ingredients of mchiriku, a kind of party-music heard throughout the rougher parts of Bongo, as the gritty East African city of Dar es Salaam is affectionately nicknamed by locals."
