Inside the Arts: Social Exchange An Evening with Siama Matuzungidi, a Congolese Music Legend

Join us for a chance to learn about perseverance, ingenuity, and joy through music from an artist with an extraordinary story. Siama Matuzungidi and Dallas Johnson, two musicians based in Minneapolis, are conducting an arts educational residency around Birmingham. Thursday evening, ASC’s Director of Engagement, Amy Miller, will facilitate a conversation exploring Siama’s journey – from the creation of Congolese soukous music, to the fleeing from Uganda’s ruthless dictator, Idi Amin.
