Akua Allrich

When: Fri., Oct. 9, 8 & 10 p.m. 2015

Akua Allrich is something of a blast from the past. The D.C.-based vocalist and performer channels tributes to Miriam Makeba and Nina Simone, for whom there’s a cottage industry of imitators. But Allrich sets herself apart through the depth of her appreciation and the sincerity of her performance. Plus, Allrich sings in many languages, including Portuguese, French, Spanish, English, Xhosa and Twi. She plays two sets to celebrate the release of Uniquely Standard, Akua Allrich Live!. —Chris Vitiello

Price: $15
