Centerstage Minnesota

Singer Lady Midnight visited the KBXE studio during CenterStage Minnesota recently. She talked about her music and a variety of artistic endeavors including helping kids at Red Lake Secondary Complex write a song and create a music video now available online. Hear the interview by clicking below.

The next in the Centerstage Minnesota concerts at the Reif Center in Grand Rapids is Siama Matuzungidi.  A Congolese guitarman,  Siama, recorded hundreds of hits and toured the world with soukous greats until making Minneapolis home base.

Siama’s picking style is legendary.  He and partner Dallas sing up a sweet storm and, along with authentic drum and belafon (a calabash marimba), they perform the sounds of DR Congo and upbeat soukous of East African dance floors

Don't fall to the temptation that spring is coming yet, we've got some winter ahead of us, and there's no better way to beat the cold than with cool music. Each week Centerstage Minnesota warms things up with music from all over Minnesota, including Atmosphere, Thea Ennen, and Reina del Cid.
