Bhundu Boy Rise Kagona
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Rise Kagona is a guitar hero to many on two continents! In Zimbabwe, Rise transferred traditional Jiti rhythms to guitar, and his band The Bhundu Boys toured the world extensively in the 1980s and 90s. The BBC's Andy Kershaw sights them as having changed his life, and John Peel famously broke down in tears the first time he saw them perform live. After sell-out shows last year, Rise returns to perform new songs and old favourites.Sunny, intricate guitar lines whose easy sparkle belie formidable technical prowes (Scotsman). Sure to make you dance!
