Afro-funk fans are in luck: Brooklyn’s Super Yamba is coming to town fronted by the veteran singer, guitarist, and producer from the Benin Republic, Leon Ligan-Majek aka Kaleta, who has toured with greats Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade and Lauryn Hill. Expect them to bring the multilingual, James Brown-influenced, Afrobeat fire to RVA — and for people to dance. Show time 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free.
