Vocal Electrofolk: Africa to New York
March 16th, 2013
Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 7:00PM

at The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space
44 Charlton St
New York, NY 10014


This evening bridges bold new vocal styles from New York and Africa through two special acts. Vocalist and improviser Helga Davis joins esteemed cellist Jeffrey Zeigler and other special guests in an evening of newly written and improvised works that range from Mexican electronica to their own musings. The Zimbabwean vocalist Netsayi joins the evening with Black Pressure -- a band that features Zimbabwe's most gifted musicians. Netsayi's style embraces the traditional and modern, Africa and the West. She puts her unique stamp on lyrical, beautiful songs of love and loss, which are as likely to be about values, innocence and culture as about romance. Each artist guests on each other’s half.
