Join Crooked Trails, BigTalk Records and the Royal Room for this ONE OF A KIND musical show and dance party with one of Africa's most exciting young bands!!!

Hailing from Victoria Falls in the NW corner of Zimbabwe, they are setting dance-floors ablaze with their unique mix of traditional Tonga and pan -African music cultures with dashes of Rap, Ska, Soukous and Afro-Cuban music.

Since winning the Music Crossroads Inter-regional Festival Competition in Malawi in 2008, Mokoomba has toured more than 40 countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania. In 2013 Mokoomba was featured at Harare International Festival of the Arts 2013's closing concert in collaboration with Senegalese star Baaba Maal. They then embarked on a 40 date summer tour with debut performances at WOMAD (UK), Roskilde Festival (Denmark) and the Gnaoua Festival (Morocco) as well as trips to South Korea, Kenya and Reunion Island. In 2014 Mokoomba performed at WOMAD Australia, WOMAD New Zealand and did a European tour including13 dates in the UK. That summer they debuted in North America on a 6 week tour that took them to Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver, London (ON), and Seattle, among other cities. Spring 2016 Mokoomba played the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, and brought down the house as part of the Africa Now1 Festival.

They will be performing a mix of material, from their new album Luyanda!

See you there!
