Zambian Artist Mathew Tembo @ Hambones Pub w/ opening act Batamba

Mathew Tembo:

Mathew Tembo is one of the most important ambassadors of Zambian Music. The award winning musician plays the silimba and a kalimba with a pop band.

Mathew Tembo combines traditional Zambian music with modern music and reggae. He uses instruments such as kalumbu, kalimba, and mbalule, but his main instrument is the silimba, the Zambian marimba.


Batamba is a heart-pounding, foot-stomping rhythmic explosion that captures the infectious grooves of West Africa, the French Antilles, Brazil, and the Caribbean. Founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the band is a special blend of electric and baritone guitar, horns, percussion, and more percussion that could easily blend into the street festivals of Carnaval in Cuba, Rio, or New Orleans, and is sure to get you moving and smiling.


Please note that the cover charge for this show is only $6
