Seed the Sound Sundays is the first project for Artist-In-Bloom resident Sitali Siyolwe. The singer, songwriter, and guitarist spent his childhood crisscrossing the globe with stops in Egypt, Russia and England. At the age of 13, Sitali had his first recording session with veteran producer Glynn Johns (of Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones fame). After stints in New York and Seattle, Sitali settled in Washington DC, where he formed the band christened with his name in 2005. Their forthcoming release “Aluta Continua” will arrive in Spring 2009.

Show will start promptly at 7:30. Please arrive early out of respect for the artists.

  • Just curious — anyone have any idea how Bloombars pays its mortgage while basically remaining closed other than a few days a month, and not earning any, ummm, profit those few days its open? Don’t get me wrong, I am happy to have them and I really hope they keep expanding the line-up of events, but I wonder if the model calls for them to eventually charge heftier fees, get a liquor license, etc.? Or maybe they will call the non-profit route and ask for community donations? In any event, glad they are here!
