Getting back together for a season of live performances is a reason to celebrate at the Convos End of Season Bash! Move and groove all night to the Afrobeat and jùjú rhythms of Brooklyn’s Super Yamba Band. Led by African guitar virtuoso Kaleta, who has toured and recorded with Fela Kuti, Lauryn Hill, and King Sunny Ade, this band will definitely fuel your shuffling feet and build momentum into the next Purdue Convocations season! Advance tickets available.
