Zili Misik brings world music to Berks

zili

Zili Misik, an all-female octet that bridges cultures, generations, and continents through music, will bring its unique sound to Penn State Berks on Thursday, April 30 at 7:00 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium.

With captivating sounds that evoke the African continent, Zili Misik retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through rhythm and song. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian, and West African rhythms infuse the group's original creations and traditional folksongs. Their songs are sensual, political, self-reflective, and positive.

This presentation is part of the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture Series. For more information on this event, contact John Gallagher at 610-396-6076.
