Jazz trumpeter Saskia Laroo and her eight-piece funk unit give a cooking live concert in Zimbabwe at the unique Harare international Festival of the Arts (HIFA) May 3, 2013. Saskia combines her jazzy sound with a rocking rhythm section, rappers Complex and Phantom, African percussionist Pape Seck and American pianist/vocalist Warren Byrd. Includes the debut performance and a radio edit of their new single "Africa Dancin". The DVD version (LRO 1401) includes POV footage of their adventures in Greater Harare: a Hang in an African village; a lion park trek; a music workshop with aspiring local youth; scenes from performances at First Street, Harare center, and at a Dutch inauguration reception in Zimbabwe. Limited edition of 500.
