Mwenso & the Shakes is a unique troupe of global artists who present music that merges the highest form of entertainment and artistry, while commanding a formidable timeline of jazz and blues expression through African and Afro American music. From Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica and Hawaii, members of the Shakes now call Harlem their home. Taking from the stylings of Fats Waller, Muddy Waters, James Brown and many other American musical legends, Michael Mwenso leads an electrifying show The New York Times calls “intense, prowling, and ebullient.”
