The Humanities and Fine Arts Convocation

Dur-Dur Band

Formed in the 1980s, Dur-Dur Band was one of the most famous groups in Mogadishu’s music scene. In the early 1990s, the civil war forced the musicians into exile, cutting off the band in its prime. Reunited after decades for this residency, the convocation will provide a special opportunity to witness “Somalia’s last great party band” in an intimate setting and playing together live for the first time in years.

Convocation:

November 14 at 10 a.m.
Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center
