“I have to put myself up to the LIGHT so that no DARKNESS can exist within me.”
Growing up in wartime Liberia, Zondo knew only death and survival. He arrived alone in America at age 15, and found SOLACE and MEANING in his musical creations. Zondo’s incredibly unique fusion of jazz, funk, and African beats produce an atmosphere of community and one-ness. His harsh beginnings have born fruitful insights on alchemizing darkness and composing healing vibrations. He shares why colonialism is a VIRUS that all races are susceptible to and how trauma led him to self-authorship. We conclude with a moving musical performance!
