AFRO FUNKE’ LIVE PRESENTS
& the Mystic Nomads
Nasambu and The Mystic Nomads, the premier sound of African World Soul Music, is back live and in full effect after a season of revitalizing musical incubation.
Earlier this year, we shared music and good times at Kathmandu Boutique’s Quarterly Open House in Santa Monica, CA, while receiving photo coverage in the June edition of LA Yoga Magazine. Nasambu & The Mystic Nomads were also the featured band at Out of Africa: A Night of Kenyan Film and Culture, held at Universal Studios in Hollywood, a stellar event, featuring the likes of Kenyan Nobel Laureate nominee, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Kenyan artists such as Wangechi Mutu and Wawi Amasha, and hosted by Kenyan actors, including Edi Gathegi, which was aired on The Africa Channel. We were also selected to perform at the Kenya Tourist Board’s Road Show in San Francisco, CA, to celebrate the music and culture of Kenya.
The Mystic Nomads is dedicated to the peaceful warriors ~ the refugees and the poets, the lovers of life and the healers of souls, immigrants, artists, earth activists ~ the mystic nomads of our time…~
Check us out online for further tour updates, and news on the upcoming live album, Nasambu and The Mystic Nomads ~ Activate Africa. The music is the soundtrack for the movement. It is a network of grassroots artists and activists working together, worldwide, through creative means, building peace through our relation-ships and our personal life context in order to Activate Africa, Ourselves, and the World.
