Following the sell out M3NSA showcase in January, OUT OF AFRICA and AFRO-POP LIVE are back in association with SERIOUS to present a live showcase of MUNTU VALDO’s much anticipated new album, THE ONE & THE MANY, at the HOXTON SQUARE BAR on MONDAY 18TH APRIL 2011.

For the last few years, one-man maverick musician MUNTU VALDO has been wowing audiences across the globe with his ingeniously creative manipulation of melody with technology. He has played alongside some of the biggest names of African music new and old, from Staff Benda Bilili, Ali Farka Toure, Keziah Jones, Tony Allen, Richard Bona, Manu Dibango and Damon Albarn’s Africa Express.
Join us for a night of ‘Sawa Blues’, as we showcases Muntu Valdo’s new album THE ONE & THE MANY, which effortlessly blends sounds from Africa with ideas from Western guitar music bringing you a raft of catchy melodies and hooks that cover a lot of ground from Afrobeat, Funk to Blues.
