MOKOOMBA

MOKOOMBA brings audiences an electrifying blend of Afro-fusion and tantalizing traditional Tonga rhythms.

Their mix of Zimbabwean rhythms, Afrobeat and Afrorock generated exuberant scenes in over 75 concerts in 2017: from New Orleans Jazz Festival to Sziget Festival featured in Songlines Magazin, Arte TV, Afropop and many more.

The name MOKOOMBA stems from the deep respect that the Tonga people have for the Zambezi River and for the vibrant life that it brings to their music and culture. This exciting Tonga group from Zimbabwe certainly has a unique sound that is set to take the world music scene by storm!

In February 2017 Zimbabwe’s most celebrated young band Mokoomba came with a new offering: Luyando. On Luyando, Mokoomba modified their rock-band oriented line-up to record a more raw, acoustic album. Their music is rooted in the local traditions and life in their hometown of Victoria Falls, a town on the Zambezi River named after the spectacular waterfall.

Since their first hit the music scene their blend of traditional rhythms and contemporary Zimrock took is taking the world by storm. MOKOOMBA brings a unique flavour to a scene that was dominated by sungura, reggae and dancehall, urban and afro jazz bands at that time.

ZIMBABWE'S HOTTEST BAND!!!!

THE LOST TRIBE

The Lost Tribe, led by drummer and percussionist Jocelyn Pleasant, is a band based in Middletown, CT that combines traditional instruments of the djembe orchestra with a modern rhythm section and horns. Their sound winds through many genres including reggae, funk, Afro-beat and high life, but is always rooted in the rhythm of the drum. This high energy band performs music rooted in West African tradition, while incorporating funk, reggae, jazz and other styles.
