Seize a rare opportunity to experience African Rumba music live at Johnny Brenda’s on Jan. 6th
It’s rare for Orchestra Afrisa International and M’Bilia Bel to venture to this neck of the woods. In fact, it’s Bel’s first time performing in Philadelphia and her last U.S. performance was in 1990. Mosey on over to Fishtown on the 6th of January, though, and you’ll be treated to a night of soukouss music — also known as African Rumba — from the very people who pioneered the genre.
Check out the WXPN Concert Calendar for more information and tickets to this 21+ show. While you’re at it take a look at this video of Orchestra Afrisa International, below.
