A Bollow showcase of West African Music and Dance based on the collaboration project in The Gambia earlier this year. A unique and entertaining evening designed to get you dancing to the unique sounds of West Africa.

Musa MBoob is an internationally acclaimed Gambian master percussionist. He was born in The Gambia, West Africa and is the son of Doudou MBoob, himself a Gambian master percussionist. In 1985 Musa became a professional performer of percussion, singing and dance, following the family tradition which can be traced back at least six generations. In 1990 he joined Ifang Bondi and toured throughout Europe.

A top percussionist, Musa also sings and plays the sabar, djembe, dun dun, snare, and tama. He is joined by his band-mates, Xam Xam. There is a rich musical repertoire with bass, keyboards, guitar, sax, kora, modern drums, and back-up vocals always in the local language. Though Musa is based in England, his sound is uniquely Gambian with a jazzy and modern Afro-pop style. The rhythms are inventive and never dull. The song titles are translated in the liner notes with short song descriptions in English. Do yourself a favour and show Musa (and Gambia, for that matter) you care about the music!
