Africa In America Magazine Presents the 2nd Annual Original Works Showcase for African Diasporic Music and Dance entitled "Woman Rise UP!/Balance'". This year's showcase will be choreographed by the Founder/Creator of AIA, Kara Mack. The theme this year is to show the power of the roles of women, and the harmony and 'balance' that's created with both the feminine and masculine...in short, we need each other. Featuring singing, dancing, film, spoken word, etc., Kara Mack is bound to leave you inspired. You don't wanna miss this!
Kara Mack will be performing for the first time at Venice's own WitZend opening for Malian singer Oumar Konate! Enjoy a beautiful night of great music!! Entry Price: $10 Performance time: 8pm George Harris from JazzWeekly.com writes: "Vocalist Kara Mack gives an anthological review of Black music, ranging from traditional African themes to contemporary R&B in this ambitious project. She has a warm and attractive, quite earnest voice, not unlike the guileless Lizz Wright. When she sings, you believe her, and that’s what makes this wide ranging album work so well. A piece like “Djarabi” is a Maliian piece dedicated to the Lion King of the Mali Empire, and with it Mack earnestly sings accompanied by the haunting kora. Across the ocean, “Black Man” is a hopping reggae piece, while modern hip hop is prevalent in the title track. You can feel Mack’s pulse on the vulnerable “Je Ne Sais Pas” as well as “Love Me” and while the instruments change through each song, the conviction never does."
