Bay Area native Goapele has quickly made a name for herself as a versatile artist combining elements of soul and world music with socially conscious, often political lyrics and ethereal aura to her work. Influenced by American soul and jazz greats as well as some of the great artists of her South African heritage. Yoshi's in Oakland is a great venue to host this soulful artist. Tickets $34 (all seats). Let's meet for dinner/drinks in Jack London (TBA) prior to the concert.
