Please join us for a unique opportunity for International Artists and Northwest Artists to come together and exchange ideas and music surrounding the struggles, inspiration, and honor of African music.

The exceptional South African vocal ensemble, Complete, and world-renowned guitarist Giuliano Modarelli, from Gregory Maqoma’s Exit/Exist will discuss the influences of South African history, race tensions, land disposition and politics on music and the arts. These dynamic artists will be joined by Seattle based African musicians to explore how perspectives and music may shift with different landscapes and new instruments.

Participating Seattle musicians:
Sheree Seretse, Director of the Anzanga/Shumba Youth Marimba Ensemble
