Msafiri Zawose & Sardina de Naiguatá Wednesday, July 11, 2012 | 8:30 PM Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall :: 4544 N. Lincoln Ave. Free ticketed event. $10 Suggested Donation BOX OFFICE: 773.728.6000 Msafiri Zawose is a prominent Gogo musician from the Dodoma region of central Tanzania. He is the son of the late Dr. Hukwe Ubi Zawose, a world renowned performer of traditional Gogo music and dance. Gogo music features a variety of instruments, including the limba, zeze, ndono, filimbi, and ngoma, all hand-made by the Zawose family in their family compound in Bagamoyo, Tanzania. Msafiri has followed closely in his father's footsteps and held on closely to the traditions of the Wagogo people as he continues his father's legacy with the spirit and passion of a new generation. Venezuela's Caribbean coastal town of Naiguata is home to one of that country's most celebrated Carnival musical traditions. In the 1970s, trumpeter Ricardo Diaz augmented the local legacy of Afro-Caribbean drumming traditions with brass, electric bass, keyboard, and women's chorus to create La Sardina de Naiguatá, the musical group that drives the town's annual cycle of public celebrations, including Carnival, Corpus Christi, and St. John the Baptist. Parranda! brings us the contemporary, joyous sounds of the pre-Christian rite of 'burying the sardine' to promote an abundant harvest of fish and crops.
