Eastman Presents: Barbara B. Smith World Music Series, Qwanqwa

When: Thu., Oct. 27, 7:30-9 p.m.

Brought together by a shared passion for the power of Ethiopian music, Qwanqwa shines an experimentalism based in the virtuosity of rooted traditions. With swirling mesenko (one-stringed fiddle), punk krar solos (electric lyre), wah-wah-violin, bass krar boom, and the unstoppable rhythm of heavy kebero (goat-skin drum) beats, powerful traditional lead African diva vocals, Qwanqwa keeps the people wrapped in celebratory attention.

Price: $20
