Jackie Akello plays the Falcon

Ugandan Afro-pop singer/songwriter Jackie Akello performs at the Falcon in Marlboro on Wednesday, September 25. An Acholi woman from northern Uganda, Akello’s war-themed songs often address the suffering of the Acholi people, during and after the Lord’s Resistance Army War. She sings in six languages and has scored hits with the love ballad “Amari” and the gospel-styled “Samanya.” Per usual, there is no cover charge at the Falcon, but donation is strongly encouraged.
