      AFRICAN ALL-STARS SUMMER FESTIVAL
      204 Varick St. @ W. Houston


      For the first time in its legendary history of
      African music support, SOB's is proud to present
      the African All-Stars Music Festival
      featuring Konono #1, Thomas Mapfumo and Blacks Unlimited,
      Kékélé and the hot monthly party JUMP N' FUNK featuring the

      Doors: 7:30
      Show: 9:30
      Tickets: $25 Advance $28 Day of the Show

      We start the festival off in a big way, with the
      Congolese troop Konono #1 on Monday night.
      Konono #1 has been exponentially
      building critical acclaim and a fanbase since the
      group's last visit to NYC, and this time, they'll
      not only be armed with their trademark
      likembé pianos, magnets, and car parts,
      but also new-to-NYC material, fresh off of
      their release Congotronics 2.

      Doors: 7:00 Doors: 10:00
      Show: 8:00 & Show: 10:30
      Tickets: $20 Advance $22 Day of the Show

      "The Lion of Zimbabwe" returns to S.O.B.'s with
      his band Blacks Unlimited for two full sets of his
      own unique blend of mbira rhythms, western jazz,
      political activism, and some damn good
      trumpet playing!

      Tickets: $20 Advance $22 Day of the Show

      Often referred to as the successors to the
      Golden Age of Congolese Rumba, Kékélé bring their
      enchanting vocals, vivacious rhythms, and
      spellbinding guitar-based dance to
      S.O.B.'s, making for a totally uplifting and
      joyous evening of Congolese Rumba.

      Admission: $7, $5 with flyer

      Jump N' Funk is like a Fela Kuti revival party,
      with Medina and BFE filling S.O.B.'s with the
      infectious Afro-Beat, Funk, House, Dance, and
      generally percussive music that was Fela! If you
      haven't yet been a part of the festivities that
      are Jump N' Funk, this extra-special festival
      finale will definitely serve as a welcome introduction.

        plays a number of that region's other string instruments.
        He served as musical director for the sensational Niger
        roots band, Mamar Kassey. Like his mentor and hero
        Ali Farka Toure, Abdoulaye is a student of many varieties
        of traditional music: Songhai, Sonrai, Tamaschek,
        Peul, Zerma, Hausa and others. Guitarists at any level
        will find they have much to learn from this extraordinary

        w/ Pyeng Threadgill
        What if you could change the sound of your voice by
        changing your physical and mental coordination?
        Of The Air Voice uses the voice to integrate body,
        mind and spirit to achieve musical expression. Through
        your voice, in speech and in song, you reveal a map of
        your body. Through awareness and voice exploration you
        can create more possibilities for different moods,
        sonic landscapes, and the ability to communicate more
        clearly. With wakefulness, western vocal exercises,
        improvisation and exploration you can build your own
        personally tailored vocal repertoire.

        TRIBAL SOUNDZ RECOMMENDS :

        OLIVER MTUKUDZI

        Thurs Aug 31
        at SOB's 204 Varick Street @ Houston St.
        212-243-4940
        Two Shows!
        Doors: 7:00pm Show: 8:00pm
        Doors: 10:00pm Show: 10:30pm
        Admission: $22 Advance, $25 Day of

        OLIVER MTUKUDZI is the best-selling artist in his home
        country of Zimbabwe, Africa. Lovingly called "Tuku" for
        short, Oliver began recording in the mid-1970s as a member
        of Wagon Wheels, a band that also featured Thomas Mapfumo.
        After Wagon Wheels rolled to fame in Southern Africa, Tuku
        formed Black Spirits, the band that has backed him throughout
        his career. Tuku has been heavily influenced by chimurenga,
        the genre pioneered by Mapfumo that is inspired by the hypnotic
        rhythms of the mbira (thumb piano). However chimurenga is just
        one of many styles performed by Tuku, as his music also
        incorporates pop influences, South African mbaqanga, the
        energetic Zimbabwean pop style JIT, or the traditional
        kateke drumming of his clan, the Korekore. While Tuku¹s
        music is undeniably contagious, it is his lyrics that have
        captured the hearts of his people. The words to his songs,
        performed in the Shona language of Zimbabwe as well as English,
        invariably deal with social and economic issues. In the face of
        political turmoil and a horrific AIDS epidemic that has swept
        the African continent, Oliver's humor and optimism creates an
        appeal that crosses generations. One of Tuku¹s biggest fans is
        Bonnie Raitt, who has not only called Oliver "a treasure",
        but has also used his music as inspiration for the song
        "One Belief Away" on her album Fundamental.
