CASIMIRO NHUSSI & NAFRO BAND
Casimiro Nhussi is the leader of the Kalahari drumming group and the NAfro Band. Nhussi is also a member of Bafana drumming group, the Million Civilian Band, and Afri-Can Band. Starting his career as dancer, then became the principal dancer, and then the Artistic Director of the Mozambique National Song and Dance Company. Cas is currently the Artistic Director of Winnipeg’s only African contemporary dance company, NAfro Dance Productions — which he founded in 2002.
The NAfro band is an African percussion-based band with a guitar and horn section and a band leader — that not only brings it all together — but is charming and entertaining. The band began playing to accompany the dance productions but soon branched out to play its own gigs around Winnipeg. Their style is AfroBeat and AfroJazz with straight-ahead rhythms.
They play their own original songs and a smattering of songs they just can’t resist covering. That’s NAfro band. They play what moves them and they’re sure it will get you moving too!Fall into their trance and simply relax and be entertained.
