WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An exhilarating musical journey, this season's Acoustic Africa: Afropean Women celebrates the roots of traditional African music and contemporary pop and R&B with three of Africa's most compelling female singers--Dobet Gnahoré, the Ivory Coast's Grammy award-winning singer and percussionist; Manu Gallo, the acclaimed former bassist for Belgian group Zap Mama, and Kareyce Fotso, the young Cameroonian singer who contributes an intriguing combination of Afropop and blues. With musical direction by guitarist Leni Stern, this first-time meeting of Afropean talent showcases a spellbinding exchange between these three great female artists.
