Local residents are invited to start the new year with folk music from East Africa at a concert by Kamatana, a musical duo from Kenya, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3

The group will perform at International House, Davis, 10 College Park.

“Dominic Ogari and Samwel Osieko will share the traditions and sounds of Kenya with you as they bring the rousing folk music of East Africa across the Atlantic,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, I-House executive director.

“The obokano is their musical instrument of choice, which is rarely heard by Westerners. Its buzzing bass tone propels each song while the duo’s melodic singing floats on top of the rhythm.”

The suggested donation is $10. For more information, callĀ (530) 753-5007 or visitĀ www.internationalhousedavis.org.
