Community Folk Art Center to Kick Off Black History Month with Che'Zee, 1/31
Community Folk Art Center, in collaboration with WAER 88.3, and Office Multicultural Affairs at Syracuse University unites for our Black History Month Kick-off event with an evening of soul, by the R&B duo, Che'Zee on Friday, January 31st at 7pm. The concert will be held as part of our highly anticipated concert series, A Journey Through Music of the African Diaspora (JMAD). This event is free and open to the public.
Che'Zee is an Atlanta based R&B duo that electrifies audiences with guitar led acoustic performances and harmonies that seamlessly blend contemporary R&B, pop, folk, and soul rhythms. Powerhouse vocalists and married couple, Zeno and Chenae Moonflower, are rising stars that use their talents to inspire love, peace, and positive energy in their fans. These R&B newcomers have fired up Atlanta's underground music scene by performing at a variety of clubs, cafe?s, open-mic nights, special events, music festivals, and the famed Apollo Theater. Che'Zee will be releasing their highly anticipated 10-track EP, "iiKanji," in March 2014.
Now in its third year, JMAD, the one-of-a-kind series explores and celebrates the rich creativity, depth and legacy of African diasporan musical traditions played by local, regional and nationally recognized musicians. With an opportunity to hear music from Latin to Gospel, JMAD creates a space for people to come together around a central idea, music, and listen to signature pieces by talented musicians whose individual diversity is as varied as the genres of music they play.
All events are open to the public, and donations are welcome.
We are able to bring A Journey through Music of the African Diaspora thanks to our sponsors WAER and The Third Thursday (TH3).
