Afro-Brazilian Sounds: A Guitar & Mbira Duet Concert

with Tomas Rodriguez & Kevin Nathaniel

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

An Evening Concert
Friday, February 12, 2021, 7:30 – 9:00 pm EST

Join us for the modern merging of two melodic instruments that have been played together for centuries, and the merging of two master musicians of the disciplines: Tomas Rodriguez on guitar and Kevin Nathaniel on mbira. The program will range from traditional songs from Zimbabwe to contemporary compositions, from Flamenco to Afro-Brazilian guitar classics, as both musicians explore the polyphonic potential of an ancient partnership rooted in Africa.


Note: After tonight’s concert, Kevin will chat with Tomas and will welcome some Q&A from the audience.
