Out of South Africa

At the Southampton Arts Center

A free outdoor concert by Bakithi Kumalo and the Nations United Band will take place at the Southampton Arts Center on Saturday at 7 p.m. A top session bassist in his native South Africa, Mr. Kumalo was introduced to Paul Simon in 1985 and went on to perform in the “Graceland” sessions and on the accompanying tour.

His band, which includes Miho Nobuzane on keyboards, Beledo on guitar, and Rodney Harris on drums, draws upon Brazilian jazz, South African folk music, and mixed meter and traditional jazz. Chairs, blankets, and picnics will be welcomed at the outdoor concert.
