On Tuesdays during the month of August, Boston Afro-Pop band Kina Zoré presents music from Africa featuring their own infectious African dance grooves plus a special guest each week. Tonight it's the ATLAS SOUL
Recently featured on the BBC, and in the Christian Science Monitor, Kina Zoré is one of the hottest Afro-pop bands in Boston. Founded by Helder Tsinine, of Mozambique, the group delivers powerful African dance grooves at every show. This collective of Berklee (and NEC) graduates is also focused on social issues, preaching the importance of compassion, and action on behalf of those suffering from poverty, homelessness, and AIDS. Despite tackling such serious topics, Tsinine's music has an undeniably positive tone to it, proving that music made to move the world forward can still move people on the dance floor.
"Tsinine's talent as a songwriter, mixed with his fellow band members' outstanding musicianship, make for an award-winning mix." -Anthony Stokes, director of the Peacedriven Campaign
"Tsinine's upbeat music possesses an ulterior motivea self-proclaimed 'consciousness-raising' that lifts it past generic Afro-pop to music with a message." -Harvard Crimson
Atlas Soul is an award-winning band performing original music that celebrates Afro-Mediterranean culture and rhythm spiced with Jazz and Funk. Incorporating many genres into their sound such as RaÃ, Funk, Shaabi, Jazz, Afrobeat, Jungle, Socca, Reggae, Gnawa, and Samba; this band posesses a sound and talent that truly spans and samples the deliciousness of human culture and experience. Naturally you can categorize them in the "world music" category. They sing in Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, Hebrew and English, making it not only a truly World Music band, but probably one of the only group of this kind currently residing in the United States of America. - See more at: http://www.atlas-soul.com/press/#.U8awI173NBU
