Description

In the summer of 2016, Bakithi Kumalo - the original bass player on Paul Simon's Graceland Album - was scheduled to perform his original music at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. From that booking the concept of a "Graceland 30th Anniversary Tribute" was born. Backed by an all-star band and featuring many of the best singers at the Festival, the tribute was a monster hit. Lead vocalist Ryan Tennis suggested keeping the project alive and assembled an all-star band centered around Kumalo, whose iconic bass lines and bright smile bring authenticity to a show that's passion, energy, and pulsing South African rhythms go far beyond that of a standard "tribute band."

Featuring all of the Grammy-winning hits ("Call Me Al", "Graceland", "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes", etc) and performed by some of Philadelphia's finest musicians (with members of Amos Lee's band and other standouts), The Graceland project is the feel-good, sing-along night of the year.
