Acoustic Africa concert

BARPCV had a great time at the Acoustic Africa concert at the Somerville Theater. Acoustic Africa is an exhilarating musical journey, bringing together three of Africa’s great guitar masters. The performance featured Habib Koité, the Malian superstar whose exciting concerts have endeared him to audiences worldwide; Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi, the best-selling artist in his home country of Zimbabwe; and Afel Bocoum, a guitarist, singer and composer from Mali whose songs evoke the evolution of traditional Malian society. 

See World Music for more information about the performance.


Thanks to all those who participated in this event.  Don't forget to continuously check the calendar for upcoming events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Peace Corps!
