KZFR is proud to present blues virtuoso Aki Kumar at the Chico Women's Club.

Aki Kumar left his native home in Mumbai, India for the United States with the intention of working as a software engineer. Then he discovered the sounds of the blues, and his life changed dramatically.

DOORS open at 6:30pm, SHOW starts at 7:30pm

$20 Advance TICKETS available on Eventbrite or at our office in lovely Downtown Chico, CA.

KZFR volunteers will be serving up Sierra Nevada Brewery ales, wine, hard ciders, soda & water for purchase at the no-host bar.

One of the hardest working artists on the music scene today, this San Jose-based musician has successfully blended elements of Indian music into his musical and visual presentation, making for a multi-cultural mash-up that sounds like no one else, yet never loses touch with the inspiration it draws from the blues. He has made multiple appearances at The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, has been featured on PRI “The World,” and has toured in Russia, Scandinavia and South America.

Kumar's Little Village Foundation releases Aki Goes To Bollywood (2016) and Hindi Man Blues (2018) are considered ground-breaking albums that have garnered international critical acclaim. In 2020, Kumar made major news with the world-wide launch of his album Dilruba on Sony Music India. Kumar kicked off 2021 with the release of an uplifting reggae-infused single "Zindagi" (Life).

All funds raised at this event support KZFR 90.1 FM Community Radio. Serving the Sacramento Valley, the foothills, and beyond since 1990.
