African Jazz w/ Lorens Chuno at The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts And Cultural Center
Join us for a night of West-African Jazz Fusion with LORENS CHUNO. The educative and elegant style of this singer-dancer has been compared to those of Fela Kuti and Angelique Kidjo. This will be a night to remember.
Audiences have praised Lorens Chuno’s live performance as energy-filled, captivating, and educative. This New York based, Nigerian musician has created a unique sound that can be broadly described as West-African jazz fusion. His warm and dynamic vocal style, along with his bold compositions, helps define this unique sound. Lorens Chuno has played several concerts, many a time, sharing stages with international acts like the Chicago Afrobeat Projects, and the Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars. He has also worked with some legendary musicians including drummers Poogie Bell and Roger Humphries, and pianist Howie Alexander and Marc Cary. His newly released album “Naija Rhythm Affair, NYC” is the result of four years of observations, lyric writing, and composition. The singer-pianist-songwriter describes the album as a collection of music and lyrics that address contemporary issues from the perspective of a new generation African.
