Win FREE Tickets to Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks Unlimited @ the Sanctuary for Independent Media on Saturday
Happy 10th anniversary to Troy’s Sanctuary for Independent Media!
And in celebration of the birthday, the Sanctuary is hosting a big concert by the African protest songsmith and anti-apartheid legend Thomas Mapfumo and his band the Blacks Unlimited at 8pm on Saturday (April 2).
With his fierce, gruff baritone, 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 celebration in Troy are currently available for $20.
