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. Tragedy befell The Bhundu Boys, but Rise and his music continue. Today his new jit jive band is unique in the world for performing jiti music. 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 prowess (Scotsman). Sure to make you dance!
