We are pleased to welcome musician Zerui Depina from Cape Verde off the coast of West Africa to the Listening Room at Drum & Strum. Depina will be joined by vocalist, Aimee Curl, and multi-instrumentalist, Danny Knicely with whom he forged a musical relationship while on a tour of the islands sponsored by the U.S. State Department and the Virginia Folklife Program. Before returning to Cape Verde with vocalist Aimee Curl this Fall, the three will give a series of rare concerts including a special showing at the Embassy of Cape Verde in Washington D.C. The performance includes Morna, Funana, and instrumental music from Cape Verde mixed with songs and tunes from the mountains of Virginia. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Seating is limited, and advance purchase is highly recommended. Children 12 and under admitted free with parent or guardian.
