Jabali Afrika

Jabali Afrika, a dynamic musical group from Kenya, will bring its unique musical sound to Penn State Berks on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.
Decribed as truly multifaceted with its own original blend of fusion and African rhythms, Jabali Afrika’s original compositions and traditional African melodies come alive on a wide variety of instruments, accompanied by vocal harmonies that combine modern rock, jazz, gospel, blues, and other musical styles. With talented dancing and choreography, and stunning African tribal costumes, Jabali Afrika presents a multicultural experience that will leave the audience enriched, educated, and entertained.

Sixteen years ago, the members of Jabali Afrika would meet to plan and dream about their musical future. Today their award-winning, innovative mélange of traditional spirituals and rock-reggae arrangements is a pillar of world music festivals and concerts worldwide.

This presentation is part of the Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Student Life at 610-396-6067.
