Key Ingredients of African Soul - $5: Saturday, April 28, 2018 | 07:00pm-10:00pm

Tucson's premiere African roots/pop/ soul/ reggae/ and world beat band. 

 The Key Ingredients of African Soul will again bring their Pan-African extravaganza to Monterey Court once again.  It is a family friendly event with a $5 entry fee. 


While geographically isolated in southern Arizona, the Key Ingredients of African Soul have been contributing to the world's Afro-pop music scene since 2008. Through the travels and outreach efforts of band co-founders, Praise Zenenga, a University of Arizona professor hailing from Zimbabwe, and Mike Olson aka Doc Twang, a veteran of decades of traditional and modern African music studies, Tucson, Arizona is becoming well known as a prime destination for African artists seeking collaborators or a backing band able to perform their culture's music. They have opened concerts for Malian performers, Tinariwen and Khaira Arby, shared the Ashkenaz stage in Berkeley with Baba Ken Okulolo and his AfroBeat ConneXXion and, in addition, their CD recordings feature an impressive list of collaborations with both well known and aspiring artists from Africa.

 

The Key Ingredients of African Soul are an organically grown ensemble that has managed to survive, evolve and thrive for over eight years, totally independent of any record company support, no small miracle in itself! These days, they perform at Monterey Court the last Saturday of every other month! Featuring the joyful, spirit infused mix of marimba, guitars, drums and voices, they will take your imagination on a tour of Africa's music styles, dances and languages, from Zimbabwe to the Congo to Nigeria and beyond!

 

While there are bands around the USA who specialize in different kinds of African music, there are few, if any, more versatile than the Key Ingredients of African Soul! Their highly charged fusion of Soukous, Highlife, Chemurenga, Township, Sungura, Reggae and more will make your day, maybe your whole week!
