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

YOUR RHYTHM, YOUR LIFE: Pulse Tools for the Total Musician

YOUR RHYTHM, YOUR LIFE: Pulse Tools for the Total Musician Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Join Grammy-Award-winning master drummer Glen Velez, vocal phenomenon Loire Cotler, and acclaimed cellist Eugene Friesen for a rare opportunity to expand your rhythmic awareness and project new dimensions of energy into your performance.

Frame drummers, instrumentalists and vocalists are welcome to join this special guided process of discovery into the
inner world of flowing time and creative collaboration.

Glen and Loire's innovative approach uses stepping, gesture and rhythm vocals as the basic tools for exploring pulse flow and time awareness. We then apply this knowledge to our instruments or voice in coached ensemble settings. Drums and shakers - essential shamanic instruments - help guide our sonic adventures. (Glen Velez Signature Series drums and shakers will be provided.)

Eugene Friesen, author of “Improvisation for Classical Musicians,” is known for catalyzing improvisation in group settings.
Participants in “Your Rhythm, Your Life” will apply new-found rhythmic skills in ensemble settings that encourage
free play, listening, responding and discussion.

This special weekend event will include classes, performances, conversation, jam sessions and ensemble work.

Topics will include:

▪ The impact of body movement and spatial awareness on our feeling for pulse, steadiness and the pure pleasure of rhythm

▪ How the different areas of our body influence how strongly we pulsate

▪ How our inner organs generate sound and pulse

▪ How rhythmic vocalizing changes our perceptions

▪ How the space around our bodies can be "tuned" to a greater resonance

▪ The role of language in our pulse explorations

Tools:

▪ Handance - simple body movements, combined with rhythmic cueing, rhythmic gestures and call/response interactions

▪ Overtone Singing - deep breathing while producing multiple tones

▪ Drum Language - konnakol, the ancient vocal art from South India

▪ Clapping Patterns - creating steady pulse and recurring rhythm cycles

▪ Interactive Play - fun and energizing group improvisation

▪ Sacred Motif in Improvisation - using pulse to guide your improvisation


Acknowledging the importance of context and environment in discovering the inner voice of every musician, Your Rhythm, Your Life will take place in the ambience of the Stone Church in Bellows Falls, Vermont, a sonic and aesthetic setting that coaxes new sounds and ideas from even experienced performers.

Time: 8/23/18 4:00pm - 8/26/18 1:00pm

Amythyst Kiah Concert

Amythyst Kiah Concert Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Part of Pentangle’s Brown Bag Concert Series
*Beer and Wine on sale courtesy of Bentleys Restaurant*

A professed Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. Accoutered interchangeably with banjo, acoustic guitar, or a full band (Her Chest of Glass), Amythyst’s toolbox is augmented by her scholarship of African-American roots music. Her eclectic influences span decades, drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by strong R&B and country music vocalists from the ’50s-’70s (Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) and influenced by contemporary artists with powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, and Janelle Monae). Recent tours in Scotland and the U.K. have seen Amythyst performing for audiences at the Americana Music Association UK Showcase, the Southern Fried Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and SummerTyne Americana Festival. She is a crowd favorite at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion in the U.S., has performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, and the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival. Provocative and coolly fierce, Amythyst Kiah’s ability to cross the boundaries of blues and old-time through reinterpretation is groundbreaking and simply unforgettable.
