On Tuesdays during the month of August, Boston Afro-Pop band Kina Zoré presents music from Africa featuring their own infectious African dance grooves plus a special guest each week. Tonight it's M'Bolo
Recently featured on the BBC, and in the Christian Science Monitor, Kina Zoré is one of the hottest Afro-pop bands in Boston. Founded by Helder Tsinine, of Mozambique, the group delivers powerful African dance grooves at every show. This collective of Berklee (and NEC) graduates is also focused on social issues, preaching the importance of compassion, and action on behalf of those suffering from poverty, homelessness, and AIDS. Despite tackling such serious topics, Tsinine's music has an undeniably positive tone to it, proving that music made to move the world forward can still move people on the dance floor.
"Tsinine's talent as a songwriter, mixed with his fellow band members' outstanding musicianship, make for an award-winning mix." -Anthony Stokes, director of the Peacedriven Campaign
"Tsinine's upbeat music possesses an ulterior motivea self-proclaimed 'consciousness-raising' that lifts it past generic Afro-pop to music with a message." -Harvard Crimson
M'bolo plays mbalax, the high energy music of Senegal. "M'bolo" means "together" in Wolof, a language spoken in Senegal. Cheikh Ngom, lead singer and songwriter, was born and raised in Kaolack, a city on the coast of Senegal. He has been singing, dancing, and playing sabar drums all his life. He has performed throughout Africa, Europe and the U.S. Dillon Zahner, Galen Gregory Willett, and Beza "bayz" Gebre, M'bolo's guitarist, bass player, and drummer met at Boston's Berklee College of Music. They share a love of West African rhythms. When they heard Cheikh perform at a Cambridge Club, they joined him and formed M'bolo. M'bolo has been performing for about three years.
