Double Time Jazz feat. Michael Mwenso & The Shakes
April 5, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0$32.50
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. This presentation of Michael Mwenso & The Shakes for the Jazz Touring Network is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Art’s Regional Touring Program.
