Africa Night featuring Zoumountchi, every Saturday at Sahara Lounge.

Not enough music lovers know about this phenomenal group electrifying the air in Sahara Lounge every weekend. Time to spread the word.

It’s your introduction to Saturday’s Africa Night at this East Austin treasure, also home to an equally-electrifying Latin Night and jazz improv jam, an OG HQ for Riders Against the Storm‘s ultimate celebration Body Rock ATX, and a very popular Ladies Night extravaganza. Each Saturday, Austin-based Afrobeat outfit Zoumountchi, led by multi-instrumentalist Ibrahim Aminou, envelops the room with a rich blend of original music and various arrangements of traditional African songs.

Saturday night plans sorted! This Saturday, July 13, the evening begins with Afro Jazz at 7:30 p.m., followed by Afropop jams with Bamako Airlines at 9 p.m., then Zoumountchi takes over at 11 p.m.
