“An extraordinarily pliable voice in settings rich with melody, emotion and rhythm. his gift for melody and his persuasive powers for interpretation establish an instant connection for listeners(…) always fascinating.” – Los Angeles Times.
Flushing Town Hall presents an in-person, live concert "Beautiful Vibration" - Colors of African Music featuring award-winning vocal virtuoso Gino Sitson. Originally from the Bamiléké region of Cameroon, Central Africa, Gino Sitson’s daring musical project combines jazz, gospel, blues and traditional African polyphonies, polyrhythms and melodies in a most innovative way. Join us for an exciting and energetic combination of new sounds, where percussive grooves and enchanting vocals are intertwined with lyrical melodies. His family comes from a long line of musicians known as Ntontas ("players of horns"). Sitson is a UNICEF Cameroon Goodwill Ambassador.
Gino Sitson: voice, body percussion & compositions
Marvin Sewell: acoustic guitar & voice
Lonnie Plaxico: double bass
While we’re offering both virtual and in-person tickets, in order to ensure the safety of audiences, performers, and staff, only 42 in-person tickets will be available (in honor of our 42nd anniversary). We will NOT be using the newer relaxed CDC and NY State guidelines that allow vaccinated individuals to attend indoor events without masks or social distancing; instead, we will be adhering to the PRIOR guidelines that keep capacity below 33% and require audiences to continue to wear masks and practice social distancing.
If you are interested in attending this event in person, please read this document carefully before purchaing tickets.
This program is also streamed live online, and you can purchase virtual tickets to receive the live link and get a reminder!
