Liyana Concert

Last Thursday we had a very special musical group perform at the Robeson Center. Liyana, and Afro-fusion group, comes all the way from Zimbabwe and made a stop at Rutgers-Newark for a free concert on their tour of the US.

Carol McLaughlin and Sarah Rahman from the Rutgers-Newark Observer submitted these great photos.

The members of Liyana range from 17-23 years old, and are extraordinary not only because of their musical talent, but also due to the fact that each member was born with severe disabilities. On their tour, Liyana performed at Disneyland, Stanford University, NJPAC, the House of Blues and MacWorld. Liyana performed their music to a packed audience at the Robeson Center.
