Listen to the Umoja Orchestra.

The Umoja Orchestra is extremely popular in their hometown of Gainsville, Florida and now they are bringing their big bold sound to the Middle East Club in Central Square. This band has been known to host up to 15 musicians on stage at once. Instrumentation includes vocals, guitar, brass, saxophone, banjo, keyboards, and percussion. Umoja is the Swahili word for unity and true to its name the band’s music is an intriguing fusion blend of Afro-beat, Afro-Cuban, and African folk genres, with jazz, funk , and an over-all Latin sound. You will definitely want to bring along your dancing shoes to this musical event! You can easily catch dinner beforehand  at the Middle East’s main restaurant or at ZuZu, also located on the club premises. Both eateries serve Middle Eastern as well as some other cuisines.
