Sat 4/4
Vusi Mahlasela

Vusi Mahlasela is a celebrated South African singer-songwriter whose music is steeped in the emotions of a never-ending quest for justice and freedom. His songs combine elements of South African folk music with the loose structures and improvisational bent of jam band rock. That his struggle music eschews resentment in favor of love and forgiveness is a true testament to Mahlasela’s beneficence. Like his message, Mahlasela’s voice resonates deeply — a breath of dewy sunlight, generous and full of optimism at the end of a long night. Essential tracks include “When You Come Back” and “Say Africa.” $35, 8pm Sat, Jo Long Theatre, 226 N Hackberry St., (210) 207-7211, thecarver.org. — JC
