Zansa is a slang word from the Ivory Coast meaning "combination" or "blend". The Asheville musicians are fronted by Adama Dembele, a 33rd generation West African musician who moved to the area and formed the band in 2005. They return to Studio B before heading to their Friday night show in Asheville, and this time they'll be joined by guitarist Moussa Kone (who tours with Affou Keita).
Live Friday the 18th at 1pm: ZANSA
