Mwenso and The Shakes
A staple of the NYC jazz scene, Mwenso & The Shakes are a global troupe that fuses jazz with funk, rock, gospel and blues, doing so a panache and showmanship that takes their art to a full-fledged experience.
This engagement of Mwenso and The Shakes is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
