Epic horns, organic vocals, and swirling polyrhythms make Kina Zoré a force of hypnotic beauty. Fronted by soft-spoken and charismatic Mozambican songwriter Helder Tsinine, the six-piece powerhouse commands the dance floor with earthy, electric African rhythms that echo from Helder’s hometown of Maputo. Since winning the 2011 Peacedriven Songwriting Contest, Kina Zoré has attracted international attention, including features on BBC Africa, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Agência Angola Press. With fans flocking to dance floors across the Northeast, it should come as no surprise that the name “Kina Zoré” itself is a call to dance.
