165 West 65th Street, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10023

“One of the world’s greatest ‘pop-griots’ or storytellers.” – Pop Matters

This solo show invites you to experience one of today’s most engaging torchbearers of the African griot tradition of musical storytelling. Part of a growing group of post-colonial Cape Verdean artists reclaiming traditional musical styles, Tcheka is building a distinctly 21st-century catalog of songs influenced by batuku and other indigenous genres, Brazilian music, Afropop, jazz, blues, and rock. With expressive vocals and dynamic guitar style, he draws audiences into universal themes of love, loss, beauty, social justice, and what it means to be home.
