The Paramount Center for the Arts, KVSC and SCSU are thrilled to present famed Somali musician Aar Maanta and his band the Urban Nomads on the Paramount stage. Aar Maanta’s talent, passion and willpower, he is today revered as one of the most creative and talented Somali musicians out of the Horn of Africa. After the challenges of an uprooted childhood and resettlement due to the Revolution in Somalia, Aar had to overcome further obstacles to arrive at this point in his career. Residing in London since the 1990’s, he formed his band, The Urban Nomads, a multinational and multi-talented collective. They groove to rhythms varying from slinky North African to choppy reggae and a couple of grandstand funk numbers. Their music is a fusion of Afro-hop. The concert is on Saturday,October 13 at 7:30 p.m. Area college students and faculty can attend for free with an ID.
