“The most stunning achievement of the world premiere is that in promising a goddess of music, it delivers. ‘Goddess’ finds fulfillment and riches from the fact that love happens at all — that it can make us unselfish, even for one fateful moment.” — San Francisco Chronicle
A mysterious singer arrives at Moto Moto, a steamy Afro-jazz club in Mombasa, Kenya. She casts an entrancing spell on everyone, including a young man who has returned home from studying in America. Will the big plans for his life — stepping into a political legacy and marrying his fiancée — be upended?
Inspired by the myth of Marimba, the Goddess who created beautiful songs from her heartbreak, this is a rousing tale of romance, the supernatural, and the quest towards one’s truest self.
