Somi

When: Fri., July 15, 8 & 10 p.m. and Sat., July 16, 8 & 10 p.m. 2016

Vocalizing a sturdy bridge between the melancholy and mechanical side of jazz harmonies, Rwandan-Ugandan singer Somi puts in two nights on Beyù’s stage, offering consecutive experiences of Sade-meets-Angelique Kidjo. Fresh off a 2015 residency at UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance, NYC’s Baryshnikov Arts Center, and a TED fellowship, Somi brings aptly titled and tall tunes like “Ginger Me Slowly” and “When Rivers Cry” with her—not as an affirmation of her accomplishments but as a beacon of her presence and precision. —Eric Tullis

Price: $20-$25
