Music for the Masses: Africa Rocks! #8

Mar 19, 2023: 1pm - 3pm

Hosted by Neva E. Wartell.

How does Africa rock? Let us count the ways. Part 8 of this continuing series dives deep into the realm of rock fusion from north, south, east, west, and central Africa, from the 1960s to the present. Replete with searing guitars, driving rhythms, punching bass lines, swirling keyboards, hard-hitting horns — and, as always, many surprises.

"Music for the Masses" invites you on an excursion of sound and rhythm. Discover the music of established and emerging artists, both signed and unsigned, on the international music scene. For the avid globe-hopper and armchair traveler alike. You might want to pack a map and a sandwich.
