Price: $10-$13

Zulu Spear, founded by the late singer/composer SechabaMokeoena, was one of the original Bay Area "world beat" bands and introduced local audiences to the sounds of Zulu jive long before Paul Simon's Graceland made South African music familiar to a mass audience. Original bass singer Gideon Bendile has reunited most of the band's original lineup to support his new CD, Come on Over to Our House, and have only played a couple gigs since they reunited. The Palm Wine Boys evolved from the ashes of Mud Hut,another popular world beat band. Heavily influenced by their mentor S.E. Rogie, the Palm Wine Boys base their sound on the calypso-like palm wine music of Ghana, and create bright lilting music guaranteed to raise your spirits and get you moving.Zulu Spear and the Palm Wine Boys groove the house at Ashkenaz (1317 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley) on Friday, Apr. 10. 8:30 pm., $10, $13.
