The Midway Cafe, located in Boston’s Jamaica Plain, has been hosting some of the areas best live  music entertainment since 1987. During African Music Night, you can enjoy three different interpretations of Afropop, compliments of Martin Case and the Lee, Helder Tsinine, and Galen and Friends. Then round out your evening with a little soul, folk-rock, and blues with the Adam Block Band. That’s five full hours of music and dancing fun!

More about the world music line-up:

Martin Case and the Lee: (African fused jazz and groove) Based on instrumentation that includes flute, bass, saxophones, keyboards, musical technologies, and a percussion section augmented with ethnic touches via Djembe and Djun-Djun and some home-made instruments as well, the band’s sound is heavily laced with musical elements from  not only Africa, but other regions around the world too. The ensemble is led by the highly accomplished performer, composer, and producer Martin Case.  

Helder Tsinine: (Afropop from Mozambique) This Berklee electric/acoustic guitarist, composer, and teacher will be accompanied by his very own ensemble which is guaranteed to have you dancing the night away. In addition to Afropop, Mr. Tsinine is also extremely familiar with world folk, funk, jazz, blues, and reggae as well.

Galan Willett and Friends: (Afro-Fusion) Mr. Willett is a Berklee bassist who also plays with Helder Tsinine in addition to leading his own Afropop band. His “Friends” will be joining him on trumpet, tenor sax, trombone, piano, guitar, and drums.

Don’t miss this opportunity to sample the musical talents of four great bands in one evening!!!
