CHARTWELL DUTIRO
http://chartwelldutiro.com/
He has played the Shona mbira virtually his entire life. From his village childhood in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) when he played at ceremonies with a local spirit medium, to his years performing and recording with Zimbabwes iconic THOMAS MAPFUMO and the Blacks Unlimited, to his more recent career as a teacher, solo artist, and bandleader in the U.K., Chartwell has cut a remarkable path through African music. Chartwell is a superb instrumentalist and a soulful singer. His arrangements of Shona traditional music are both innovative and inspirational. He is also a gifted storyteller with a deep sense of history and a wry sense of humor. An evening in his presence is an unforgettable experience.

Chartwell specializes in collaborations, and has worked with artists in many genres all over the world. For the past three years, Chartwell has been collaborating with the New York based band TIMBILA. On stage and in the studio, where they are completing a collaborative CD, Chartwell and Timbila create music of mesmerizing beauty, disarming humor and unexpected surprises. Tonights concert features an mbira duo with Nora Balaban, mbira player & singer from Timbila.

SAMBALOLO
SambaLolo was formed as a performance group in 1999 by Boubacar Diabate. Its mission has been to gather the best of Bamako's musicians together in a peaceful and prosperous community, tasked with traditional roles of a Jeli (Griot) work in resolving conflict, making the community stronger and passing the messages from our ancestors.

Singing in Mandeng and Bamanan, Boubacar and SambaLolo create music which spans the full spectrum of Traditional to Contemporary Malian music with trips to Reggae, Blues and Jazz.

"It cuts cleanly and crisply through the genre clutter with a groove that slices directly to the heart with honest power."
