Mwenso and The Shakes
Mwenso and The Shakes
Mwenso and the Shakes are a unique troupe of global artists who present music that merges the highest form of entertainment AND artistry while commanding a formidable timeline of jazz and blues expression. Originating from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica, South Florida, Hawaii the Shakes all now call Harlem their home. Taking from the stylings of James Brown and many other African American musical legends – Michael Mwenso leads an electrifying show the NY Times calls “intense, prowling, and ebullient.”
The traditional sound of the djembe along the classical sound of the violin. The rhythms of Haiti combined with the exotic Afro sounds of Colombia with an urban twist from Brooklyn. All of these ingredients give you StringsNskins. The band started as a duo in late 2013 with the purpose of mixing the similarities between Colombian and Haitian culture. Eventually the band grew to a 5-piece ensemble.

StringNskins takes you on a journey through the African Diaspora in Latin America and the Caribbean, while also bringing together the different cultures by pointing out their similarities. The high energy sets include traditional dances, songs in English, Spanish and Haitian creole, and the message of unity.

The music of StringsNskins will elevate your soul.
