Bhundu Boy Rise Kagona
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Rise Kagona is a guitar hero to many on two continents! The BBC's Andy Kershaw cites him as having changed his life and John Peel famously broke down in tears the first time he saw the Bhundu Boys perform live. In Zimbabwe, Rise transferred traditional Jiti rhythms to guitar, and his band toured the world extensively in the 1980s and 1990s. This is a rare chance to see Rise perform with his new jit jive band. Rise's ‘sunny, intricate guitar lines whose easy sparkle belie formidable technical prowess’ (Scotsman) are sure to make you dance! Ages 18+.
