× ORCHESTRE LES MANGELEPA McIntyre Hall Presents Saturday, April 18 7:30pm

Tickets: Reserved Seating $25 - $35

Comprised of seven Congolese musicians who settled in Kenya, Les Mangelepa helped drive the East African evolutionary spur of one of the greatest musical art forms - African rumba - during the 1970s. Originally from the Swahili-speaking part of Eastern Congo, Les Mangelepa have released more than 13 albums and penned some of East Africa’s best-loved songs. Orchestre Les Mangelepa have thrilled fans throughout the region - including Zambia, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania - by churning out hits such as ‘Embakasi’, ‘Maindusa’, ‘Walter’ and ‘Safari ya Mangelepa’. Their brilliant arrangements and superbly crafted songs have kept legions dancing to their beat, aided by guitars, brass and vocal harmonies.

This concert is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Washington State Arts Commission.
