The University Programming Council at Frostburg State University presents the Kenyan band Jabali Africa LIVE! at the Loft on Friday, Oct. 26, at 9 p.m. in the Lane University Center’s Derezinski Loft.
Jabali Afrika originates from East Africa’s Kenya and is known for its unique mixture of African rhythms. Each member of the band is skilled in composing songs, playing a number of instruments and blending their voices into harmonious sound, as well as dancing and choreography.
The band originated in 1993 from the Kenya National Theatre Dance Troupe. The members were feeling unnecessarily censored, and they were dissatisfied with the choices in their repertoire. As a result, Joseck Asikoye, Victor Elolo, Justo Otongo, Evans Chagala and Robert Owino formed Jabali Afrika.
