Jabali Afrika, Kenyan music and dance trio, will perform on today, Nov. 15, in MSU 183, at 7 p.m. The band's original sound is attributed to its own unique mixture and special fusion of African rhythms. Their performance include both dance and traditional East African tribal costumes. Jabali Africa’s members are not only composers, singers, instrumentalists, and percussionists but they also draw upon their shared history from the Kenya National Theatre Dance Troupe. The trio engages and has many ways of keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. Jabali Afrika's enthusiasm really inspires enthusiasm and audience participation. The event is sponsored by Association for Campus Events through SGB.
