“Lib at Large: The second coming of Zulu Spear”

“World famous Afro-beat and roots music band Zulu Spear, spearheaded by front man Gideon (“Lion King”) Bendile, will be shaking Guerneville down to its redwood roots and turning Jerry Knight’s River Theater into a world class venue on at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 21, with what is expected to be one of the most significant musical events ever to grace our sometimes-sleepy town’s ancient forests. Playing traditional South African mbaqanga rhythms and harmonies with modern electric instruments, percussion and horns, Zulu Spear has shared the stage with the likes of Ladysmith Black Mombazo, The Neville Brothers, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsalis and that garage band popularly known as the Grateful Dead.”
