SU Hosts Zibabwean Band Nobuntu Concert October 6

NobuntuSALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University hosts a concert by Nobuntu 7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 6, in Holloway Hall Auditorium.

The group from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe performs a fusion of traditional Zibabwean roots music, gospel and Afro-jazz. The ensemble’s inventive performances feature pure voices augmented by minimalistic percussion, traditional instruments such as the mbira (thumb piano) and dance movements.
