Gig Information

Grammy award winner Chris Berry (US/Zimbabwe) is an eclectic singer and songwriter, multi-instrumentalist virtuoso, and high-energy performer. From his humble beginning during Robert Mugabe’s regime in Zimbabwe, he has blasted his powerful Afro-infused sound around the World for over twenty years; rocking audiences from NYC’s Irving Plaza to sold out stadiums in South Africa and Sydney Australia’s famous Opera House.

“He (Chris Berry) possesses a unique and reedy voice like Sting, a stage presence like James Brown, and lyrical content reminiscent of Bob Marley.” - New York Press

...the sum total is a wonderful, outside the box world beat date that’s tailor made for the next generation of open eared, armchair travelers. Wild, wonderful stuff that saves you a ton of airfare and baggage fees as it takes you someplace else.” - Midwest Records

“A new voice from a new Africa in a new world.” -Radio of Mozambique

This gig will feature support and collaboration from local artists and groups: Malagasy singing virtuoso Lala Simpson, Kubatana & the Moringa Dancers, Community Music Junction's Mbira Soc, and more.
