ZUZE - Afrobeat Rhythms of Iran

We're really excited about this one - Zuze are a new and fast-rising band on the scene - alive with warmth and energy. We are so excited to be having them at the Cafe this summer! 

Dinner starts at 5:30pm, music at 7pm. Come early to get a table!
Please bring cash for the band - this is a pay-what-you-can show. 

Zuze is an 8-piece brass band playing folk melodies of Iran to afro-beat rhythms. Zuze is about the heart and the hips. Zuze is the sound of sunglasses being worn. Artistically motivated by the narrative of bi-culturism, Zuze is neither here nor there. Zuze is the experience of betweenness. Zuze is the shrinking distance connecting two worlds. Zuze is a trumpet howling a high C. Zuze is not a band, Zuze is not an audience. Zuze is the liminal space between the song and the dance. Zuze invites you to immediacy. Zuze loves you!
