Zili Misik has been bridging cultures, generations, and continents for twelve years. With captivating sounds that evoke the African continent, Zili retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian and West African rhythms infuse Zili's original creations and traditional folksongs. Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, Jamaican roots reggae, Afro-Brazilian samba, Afro-Cuban son, and African American spirituals, blues, jazz and neo soul, Zili Misik honors its influences while creating a sound that is uniquely its own.

All female, zili takes its name from Haitian spiritual entity, "Ezili" who is envisaged as mother, lover, and warrior. Zili's songs are sensual, political, self-reflective, positive, and invoke love. Zili's lyrics glide seamlessly from English to Kreyol to Portuguese to Spanish, spinning tales and visions of lives lived and yet to be.

======================================

I love checking out this band whenever I can. Let's check them out, and as usual we'll go to a local spot afterward for a post-meetup of food and conversation! We can either go to Casablanca's or The Red House (which has more live music!). Last time we went to Red House and we had a great time.

Tickets ($16) can be purchased here, and I will work again to have us sit together. Show starts at 7:30pm

    Show starts at 7:30pm, but as long as you arrive before it ends, then you should be ok. I'm guessing they might go until 9:30pm

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
