Netsayi at MassMoCA

July 19. Zimbabwean contemporary folk chanteuse Netsayi, who plays MassMoCA's Dre Wapenaar Pavilion this month, gained attention singing solo a cappella in London's clubs and backstreets. The albums Chimurenga Soul and Monkey's Wedding saw her reputation fan out across the rest of the United Kingdom, leading to a 40-date UK tour in support of Grammy Award-winning legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo. In 2010 she returned to her hometown of Harare to form the band Black Pressure, before going on to perform on NPR and tour the US. Compared to Joan Armatrading and Angélique Kidjo, the jubilant Netsayi fronts an energetic band that performs using handcrafted native African wooden instruments. 8pm. $12, $16, $20. North Adams, Massachusetts. (413) 662-2111; Massmoca.org.
