The unsung hero of African music, Abrei Woki and his long term Kalahari Band, perform live in Windhoek for the first time on Friday, 31 January at the Kalahari Coffee & Jazz Café in Windhoek.

Woki has dedicated his life to music for Africa, the world, and on par the many great musicians, the likes of Peter Gabriel, Winston Mankunkun Paul Weller who is a close friend.
After many years in Europe and America, Woki is excited to finally share Botswana’s culture with Namibians on the other side of the Kalahari and give them an unforgettable experience of soulful Afro Jazz in Township Jazz style sung in Setwana and Kalanga.
Woki will be collaborating with Tapuwanashe “Tapz” Munyayi and Ori. Tapz is an award-winning performing artist, songwriter and activist born in Harare, based in Windhoek. He is a self-taught instrumentalist and an arts educator who sings in Shona, English, Tonga and Ndebele.
