Lionel Loueke Trio to perform at Wellesley College

Lionel LouekeWellesley College kicks off its fall concert series with a free performance by guitarist Lionel Loueke from 8-10pm on Sept. 13 at Jewett Auditorium.

Praised by his mentor Herbie Hancock as “a musical painter,” Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and conventional and extended guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative sound of his own.  Along with Massimo Biolcati on bass and Ferenc Nemeth on drums, Loueke’s trio will play music from his latest CD’s, Mwaliko and Heritage, as well as some new material and a few standards.

Registration is recommended.
