Rev. Sekou

  • The Historic Theater 28 Chestnut Street Portsmouth, NH 03801 (map)

A noted activist, theologian, author, documentary filmmaker, and musician, Reverend Osagyefo Sekou was born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in the rural Arkansas Delta. Reverend Sekou’s music is a unique combination of North Mississippi hill country music, Arkansas Delta blues, Memphis soul, and Pentecostal steel guitar. In May 2017, he released In Times Like These, produced by the six-time Grammy-nominated North Mississippi Allstars. AFROPUNK heralded the “deep bone-marrow-level conviction” of his first album, The Revolution Has Come. The single, “We Comin’,” was named the new anthem for the modern Civil Rights movement by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Celebrating the consummate entertainer, Paste Studio said of his barn-burning performance: “Rev. Sekou delivers the spiritual performance we need now.”
