February 23, 2010
8pm show $20
10pm show $12
As an accomplished guitarist, percussionist, composer, arranger, band leader and performer, Mahlasela has bridged generations at home and abroad. His sound is a hybrid of folk, world, blues and soul, one that connects South Africa's Apartheid-scarred past with its promise for a better future. Over the past three years of heavy, world-wide touring and spreading his message, Mahlasela has remained true to his roots. After the end of Apartheid, Vusi performed at Mandela's inauguration in 1994, and is now an ambassador to Mandela's 46664 Foundation, a campaign to help raise Global awareness of AIDS/ HIV. Yoshi’s is very proud to present his much awaited performance.
