Awesome, this is an event that I would have gone to see a second time, had I went on the last day. I will wait patiently for Umoja to return to the Washington, DC area. Loved every minute of the performance! The dress code was casual comfortable.

A fantastic, love- and memory-filled review of what it was like to grow up as a musician in South Africa as the country encountered economic, social, and political change.
