“Dubbed ‘the next big thing’ … the jazz vocalist Akua Allrich isn’t just a rising star. She’s a skyrocket.” (DC MAGAZINE)
Jazz vocalist and DC-native Akua Allrich (a MAAF Jazz Touring Network Artist) curates and delivers a soul-stirring tribute to two powerhouse musician-activists, Nina Simone and Miriam Makeba. This talented Howard University graduate is making a name for herself in the US and beyond with a musical style that draws from blues, soul, jazz, and panAfrican music. Akua leads a sizzling hot band in renditions of beloved songs made famous by Simone and Makeba.
This engagement of Akua Allrich and the Tribe is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
