Thomas Mapfumo has been the musical voice of protest in Zimbabwe and all of southern Africa for nearly half a century. Easily the most famous singer in his native country, Mapfumo lives in exile from the regime of Robert Mugabe, and his music is banned at home.

Tickets to the all-ages bash are $20 and are available in advance.

There will also be a fundraising dinner with the band prior to the show, benefiting the Sanctuary’s new community radio station WOOC 105.3 FM. Tickets are $105.30, and reservations are required.
