This event is all ages
During Congolese guitarman Siama's formative years in Africa he helped to popularize the soukous genre by recording hundreds of radio hits and performing with many of the most popular soukous artists. Since launching his US solo career in 2014, he's received a McKnight Fellowship and several grants, he's been enlisted as a COMPAS Teaching Artist and he's been featured on MPR, The Current, Star Tribune and many other outlets. Siama recently released his critically-acclaimed new album ("Rivers") with an genre-spanning show at The Cedar. In addition to performing at festivals and special events he teaches guitar and hosts interactive programs, workshops and instrument petting zoos all over Minnesota.
