Mwenso and the Shakes - Hope Resist and Heal (virtual)
Mwenso & the Shakes: Hope, Resist, & Heal
The magnetic impresario Michael Mwenso alongside his band The Shakes, specializes in musical code-switching, freely adopting and repurposing the drama, whimsy and spirit of the Great American Songbook, African beats, funk, modern jazz, dance pop, Delta blues and cabaret theater with equal, effortless verve. In this special performance, filmed in-studio in NYC without an audience due to Covid-19 restrictions, Michael takes us on a journey in reflection of the struggles this year has brought but with hope that love will transcend our adversities.
