Samba Ngo is a native of Congo in Central Africa. His music is rooted in traditional Congolese sounds, Ngo is a master of sebene—the characteristic element of Congolese music that enchants and entrances listeners with driving layers of guitar, and call-and-response choruses. He incites passion with his own brand of encouragement: "C'est bon!"
Please join Emmanuel Nado as this extraordinary guitarist and songwriter will be our guest on Africa Mix, Thursday, February 8.
Samba performs live Saturday, February 10th at Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center 1317 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley. Doors 9:00 pm; show 9:30 pm. $15.
