Zikina- Ugandan Folk Fusion


Date & Time: 
Nov 18 2017 - 7:30pm - 10:00pm

The Zikina- Ugandan Folk Fusion experience starts with curiosity. If you're like most audience
members, you'll immediately ask, What is that hes playing? Uganda native Gideon
Ampeire draws you in with a variety of traditional East African instruments rarely found in the US, including enanga (zither), adungu (harp), and kalimba (thumb piano)- all of which he builds himself.

Once your interest is piqued by the instruments, you'll quickly discover that
there's so much more to the band beyond basic novelty. Mike Cardozo (guitar) weaves intricate melodic conversations with Gideon and dances through the beat with punchy rhythmic lines. Roston Kirk (bass) and Kade Parkin (drums) weave a sonic landscape that flows seamlessly from intense grooves to joyous dance beats to dreamy textures.

Gideon's vocals can cut powerfully through the fabric or float lightly above. It all adds up to something completely new and unique, yet immediately accessible.
