THREE TAKES ON SOUTHERN AFRICAN MUSIC

In the past week, three strong acts from Zimbabwe and South Africa have graced East Coast stages. We already reported on the Africa Now show at the Apollo Theater, featuring Mokoomba, a young band from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. We were so impressed by their set—which presented high-energy electric songs from the band’s debut CD Rising Tide—that we followed the band up to Marlboro, NY, where they played their “acoustic” or “traditional” show at a local restaurant/nightclub called the Falcon on March 29.
