NADA Presents: Mwenso & The Shakes
March 10, 5:30pm
MWENSO & THE SHAKES
Presented with Downtown for Democracy.
Mwenso and the Shakes bring their riveting musical performance to NADA with the message to uplift and empower.
Mwenso and the Shakes are a unique troupe of global artists who present music that merges the highest form of entertainment and artistry while commanding a formidable timeline of jazz and blues expression through African and Afro American music. Immigrating from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica, and Hawaii the Shakes all now call Harlem their home. Taking from the stylings of Fats Waller, Muddy Waters, James Brown and many other American musical legends, Michael Mwenso leads an electrifying show the New York Times calls “intense, prowling, and ebullient.”
