MNGWA and Zimbamoto
The WISE Hall is very excited to present An Evening of LIVE Latin and African Music with Vancouver's own MNGWA and special Guest ZimbaMoto.

MNGWA takes its name from a giant cat that once stalked the jungles of eastern Africa. A 9-piece band made up of Russians, Mexicans, and Canadians, they are a strange beast indeed. What began with the intention of playing South American cumbia has quickly evolved into something much more nebulous.

Mixing in elements of psychedelic rock, dub, African rhythms, and vocals in four languages, MNGWA injects the local music scene with a fresh global perspective. They call it "Vancumbia Ambush".

Based in East Vancouver, MNGWA is earning a reputation as a juggernaut party band, hosting underground shows that include video projections, costumes, puppets, live artwork, and a colourful entourage of weirdos. MNGWA has an album in the works, festival appearances this summer, and plans to broadcast their sound into the distant cosmos...

ZimbaMoto lays down mesmerizing and energetic grooves coming out of Zimbabwe via Vancouver, BC. Led my mbira/marimba master Kurai Mubaiwa, the bands mix of traditional/ contemporary African music, vocal chants and infectious rhythms dare you to stay seated and still. Based upon of the entrancing sounds of mbira (ancient thumb piano) and marimba, these traditional instruments are augmented by guitar, bass, drums and percussion played by some of Vancouvers finest.
