with special guests LOCURA
$7 advance / $10 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:30 show

We first caught Zili Misik's set at the Boston Music Awards two years ago and then again at The Mark Sandman Memorial concert a couple of months ago - and we were astounded both times.

Zili music bridges cultures, generations, and continents. With captivating sounds that evoke the African continent, zili retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian and West African rhythms infuse zili's original creations and traditional folksongs, while zili inspires its audiences to dance and even teaches them how. Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, jazz, roots reggae, samba, Cuban son, and neo soul, zili honors its influences while creating a sound that is uniquely its own. All female, zili takes its name from Haitian spiritual entity, Ezili, who is envisaged as mother, lover, and warrior. Zili's songs are sensual, political, self-reflective, positive, and invoke love. Zili's lyrics glide seamlessly from English to KreyÃ,Ã,,l to Portuguese to Spanish, spinning tales and visions of lives lived and yet to be.

Direct from San Francisco's vibrant music scene, this ensemble draws from the many genres that have strong traditions in the Bay Area, bringing them together into their own distinctive sound. LoCuraâs music is strongly rooted in Flamenco, deepened through their time living in southern Spain and traveling in Morocco. But it is in the way LoCura mixes and moves in and out of other musical styles, like Reggae, Cuban Son, and Hip-Hop carried by the powerful performance and the soulful vocals of lead singer Kata, that results in an irresistible desire to move and be moved.

NAIA KETE - Throughout the album her voice flows with a lyrical maturity and precision that conjures images of the great Lauryn Hill or soul diva Erykah Badu, and leaves the listener wide-eyed and ready for action.
