Alpha Blondy: African Reggae Star & His Band Solar System
The reggae superstar out of Africa's Ivory Coast hits the Howard, touring behind his newly-released 16th studio disc, the rootsy Mystic Power. Born Seydou Koné, Alpha Blondy broke through in a big way in the early '80s with a trio of albums -- Jah Glory!, Cocody Rock! and Apartheid Is Naziism -- that included hit title songs, along with best-sellers like "Brigadier Sabari," a satire on police brutality. His politically and socially-progressive lyrics struck a chord on the continent, where he became known as "the Bob Marley of Africa." The multilingual singer and Grammy nominee still remains active, recording and touring across the globe, and is also a noted humanitarian, having been named a UN Ambassador of Peace in 2005.

You need to arrive early!!!! We decided to go home after work - WRONG MOVE - go directly to the Howard to stake out a table. They have a menu that we couldn't try because we didn't have a table. I don't know if the food tastes great but it looked delicious! You can eat and drink while you wait for the show to begin.R&B Group Mint Condition info • Nov 13 2014 star this tip starred
