A day after closing Afrofest, "The Lion of Zimbabwe" played a club date (Jul. 11, 2011). Several of his band members didn't get visas into Canada, so he filled out the band with some local musicians (including Larry Lewis & Tich Maredza). By all accounts, things weren't quite tight at Afrofest, but the "local guys" (as Mapfumo called them), with an extra day to work, fit in nicely at the Lula.

Add a good sized Zimbabwean crowd, and the place was pretty lively. A fine night.
