This powerful triple bill showcases an exciting new generation of South African artists. Simphiwe Dana, a sultry Xhosa singer, fuses traditional music with jazz, R&B and Afro-Soul for a sound that is at once rootsy and futuristic. Think Miriam Makeba meets Erykah Badu. Award-winning South African vocal group, The Soil, is known for their Kasi Soul blend of rhythmic vocal bass lines, beat-boxing, and the type of sublime harmonies made famous by groups like Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Soweto Gospel Choir. Tumi Molekane, a socially conscious hip-hop artist (formerly of the groundbreaking band Tumi and the Volume) makes his US debut performing music from his latest solo album, Rob the Church.
