Concert of Colors 2022

Thursday, July 21, 2022 at 6:00pm

The Wright Museum continues its annual partnership with the Concert of Colors with a concert featuring Natu Camara. 

If you merged Miriam Makeba with Nina Simone, added a dose of Tracy Chapman and sprinkled on some Tina Turner, you might begin to explain Natu Camara. A vibrant singer and songwriter whose West African heritage, charged performance style and passion for social justice has made her a unique presence in World Music. 

Born in Ivory Coast and raised in Guinea, Natu’s devotion to music exploded in early success when she joined three friends to form West Africa’s first ever female R&B/hip-hop band, the Ideal Black Girls. Their first album, Guinea mou monèra (“It’s not a shame to be a woman”) went on to sell in the millions and was nominated for Best Album 2002 in Guinea. And though she performs her songs in five languages, they need no translation. Everyone feels the power of energy, and everyone speaks the language of the heart.  

Doors open at 5:00pm, with the show beginning at 6:00pm.
