About the Performance

Due to unforeseen travel complications this morning while en route from Europe to the US stemming from visas issues, tonight’s performance by The Good Ones has been cancelled.

Our deepest regrets and our hearts go out to the artists, who wanted very much to be here with us tonight.

Refunds will be processed post haste.

WMI presents Rwandan duo The Good Onesa band formed in 1987 as a healing process after the Rwandan genocide – an active attempt to seek out “the good ones,” after having endured and witnessed unthinkable horrors. Their vocalizations are based on the singing traditions of their local agricultural district and the primary songwriter, Adrien Kazigira interweaves intricate harmonies with co-singer, Janvier Havugimana, in a style frequently referred to as “worker songs from the streets.” With the musicians’ rural and very remote hilltop origins, their vocalizations are harmonically similar to American Bluegrass music. The ensemble also utilizes one-of-a-kind instruments in their music, often incorporating their own farming tools as percussion.

The Good Ones released their fourth studio album ‘Rwanda…You See Ghosts, I See Sky’ in 2022.

The ORIGINS series features artists who delve into the folklore and roots of their respective culture’s music to tell the story of their origins, preserving and affirming cultural identities and legacies.
