World Music at its best - Niwel Tsumbu and his band
Saturday February 28th at 9.00pm in Rose's West End Bar, Lismore
Niwel returns with a five piece band, including percussion, sax and violin. A must hear for fans of world music, jazz and rock.
"Niwel Tsumbu trades in good vibrations. His wayward incantations and surgically precise guitar lines were a breath of fresh air ... Siobhan Long, Irish Times
"One thing can not be disputed – the sheer musicianship of the group leader, Niwel Tsumbu. As a singer, he shows flexibility and expressive power, and ranges from a kind of playful scat to full-throated passion. He is as happy digging into complex, involving solos on guitar as laying down rhythmic patterns." Barra Ó Séaghdha, Journal of Music in Ireland
