The Kalimba King brings music and fun from Africa to the Bay Area.

Carl Winters, the Kalimba King, will perform at various locations throughout Black History Month. All shows are free and suitable for the whole family.

Winters will play jazz, blues, gospel and freedom and civil rights songs on 12 kalimbas (African thumb pianos). He will also provide an educational component that includes a discussion of the significance of kalimbas in African countries, a question and answer period, hands on opportunities for participants to play the kalimbas, and handouts that illustrate how to make kalimbas.

Typically, Winters tours the East Coast and Southern states during February. However, he has chosen to celebrate Black History Month in the Bay Area this year.
