The Sanctuary for Independent Media welcomes acclaimed South African artist Vusi Mahlasela back to the Capital Region with his full band for a concert at The Egg in Albany to benefit WOOC 105.3 FM.

Known simply as “The Voice” in his home country of South Africa, singer, songwriter, guitarist, and poet Vusi Mahlasela and his band will perform “Township”–an uplifting special tribute to the music of Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Dorothy Masuka, and Brenda Fassie–and celebrating the 100th birthday of global peacemaker Nelson Mandela and nearly 25 years of freedom from apartheid.

Presented by The Egg in cooperation with The Sanctuary for Independent Media as a fundraising concert for radio station WOOC. Additional support provided by the African American Cultural Center of the Capital Region.
