Orlando singer Eugene Snowden leads his Drums of Umoja through an exhilarating percussive performance


Orlando soul singer extraordinaire Eugene Snowden made his live return to the City Beautiful this week, but it was with the percussive sector of his long-running Afrobeat project Umoja. The Drums of Umoja combined Snwden's electric presence, channeling Fela Kuti, with heavy drum workouts from the assembled players. Add an opening set from Katie Burkess and Snowden and you'e got a Thursday night to remember.
