Sabouyouma Afro-Funk Concert

Sabouyouma Afro-Funk Concert Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

*Beer and Wine on sale courtesy of Bentleys Restaurant*

Master Ballafonist, Ousmane Camara leads Sabouyouma (Pronounced sah-boo-yoo-MAH), as they take listeners on a cultural journey to West Africa, to the roots of jazz , funk and, blues. Sabouyouma is a high energy 7-piece polyrhythmic groove machine that formed through ongoing musical relationships in Burlington, Vermont’s vibrant West-African dance and drumming scene. Sabouyouma is led by Guinean-born Ousmane Camara: the band’s front man, composer, and master Balafonist (the Balafon is a West-African marimba). In 2017 Sabouyouma opened for nationally touring acts like Xenia Rubinos (Brooklyn), Polyrhythmics (Seattle), Ikebe Shakedown (Brooklyn), and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra (Asheville, North Carolina), and has performed at music festivals that have become staples of the Vermont music scene: Burlington Discover Jazz Fest, Waking Windows, and The Manifestivus. Ousmane Camara is a 6th generation Griot: Historically, in West Africa, Griots passed messages from the king throughout the kingdom before pen and paper. Griots continue to play an important role in Africa today as poets, musicians, singers, and historians, preserving their ancient traditions through song. At the age of seven, Ousmane left his family’s home to go live with his teacher, Djeli Sana Camara. He would study and play balafon with his teacher for the next fifteen years. Ousmane continued to play throughout Guinea and traveled through nine other African countries. He has subsequently taught students from around the world.

Traditional West African Rhythms, Funk, Reggae, Blues, Jazz

“If you want to experience music that can transport you to another dimension, lift you to new levels of consciousness, or otherwise blow your mind, then Alash is the ticket.” — VOICES, Lancaster, PA

“This is some of the most beautiful and haunting music I have heard. If you have not heard them, you have no idea how incredible they are.” — Jeff Coffin of the Flecktones and Dave Matthews Band
