Concert to feature African, reggae sounds

Award-winning Afropop and reggae musician Mathew Tembo will perform in concert Oct. 12 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb. Tembo is a world-touring artist who fuses traditional music of his Zambian homeland with Ethiopian and reggae beats to create a unique and powerful sound.

Tembo is a top reggae musician in Zambia, and he also is an award-winning Afropop performer. He is working on his master’s degree in world music performance at Northern Illinois University, where he also leads an Afropop Ensemble. This concert is a fundraiser to return to Africa for the completion of his masters’ project.

Tembo will perform with a small group consisting of a drummer and a bass player. He also plans to have a small horn section. He will play a homemade Zambian instrument built of gourds and wood.
