Afropop Night Live & Bella Luna Restaurant Present: Kina Zoré & Maia Von Lekow
Kina Zoré unites story and song through vibrant rhythms and rich instrumental colors, creating music that delights as much as it moves. Led by Mozambican native Helder Tsinine and featuring members from across North America, Europe, and Africa, the group is the recipient of the 2012 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the 2011 Peacedriven Award. Kina Zoré has also been internationally recognized by BBC Africa, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Agência Angola Press. In the spirit of Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, and Thomas Mapfumo, Kina Zoré seeks to illuminate social issues that impact communities near and abroad, featuring lyrics and rhythms of social change. Vital to the group’s live performances are exhilarating drum breaks, lyrical solos, and undeniably danceable rhythms. Kina Zoré is a musical force not to be missed.
Maia Von Lekow
Maia brings a dynamic new color to Kenya’s contemporary musical landscape. Born and raised in Nairobi to a German/Italian mother and Kenyan father, Maia’s unique heritage is combined into a fresh sound weaving jazz, funk, folk & blues all sprinkled with swahili spice.
A traveller at heart, Maia has lived and performed in Berlin, Melbourne & Dublin. Since returning to Kenya in 2007, Maia has established her current live act, a high-energy 6-piece band that has been making waves throughout East Africa, gracing the stages of prominent festivals across Africa such as HIFA (Zimbabwe), Kigali UP (Rwanda), Sauti za Busara (Zanzibar), The Great Rift Valley Festival and Blankets & Wine (Kenya). Maia’s intimate acoustic performances, both solo and as a trio, have also garnered enthusiastic responses from audiences all over the world.
