Hannibal Lokumbe

Hannibal Lokumbe resides in the bucolic central Texas town of Bastrop with his wife Sumai and son Haile, but his career in music spanning more than four decades, continues to propel him forward on a globetrotting odyssey. Lokumbe’s journey has taken him from the cotton fields of Elgin, Texas, where he was first inspired by the spirituals and hymns of his grandparents, to the stages of Carnegie Hall and much of the world.
