Nomad finds shelter from the road in Duncan Thursday
A musical nomad with roots in Uganda comes to Duncan Thursday.
Nomad is Kinobe, a young Ugandan master of the 26-string African harp known as the kora, and Michael Waters, a Victoria-based guitar virtuoso.
They met in Uganda in 2006 and have mounted 10 tours in Canada, the USA and Europe since.
According to the duos promotional material, Kinobe has travelled the whole of Africa, playing with musicians steeped in the tribal traditional styles.
Waters played the guitar as a spiritual practice for 33 years before his encounter with the medicine ceremonies of the Amazon triggered a creative breakthrough and the decision to begin playing publicly.
Tickets are $17 advance, $20 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., music starts at 8 p.m.
