Bassist, composer and mbira player Zimbabwe Nkenya (pictured) will celebrate the release of his new CD, Bag II Project Vol. 2, with an in-store performance at 7:30 p.m. Monday, October 26 at Vintage Vinyl.

After returning to the St. Louis area in 2006, Nkenya was the prime mover behind a revived version of the Black Artists Group, a.k.a. “BAG II." The group folded at the end of last year, but Nkenya continues to perform around town solo and in various duo, trio and ensemble settings.

His CD release event at Vintage Vinyl is free and open to the public.
