KCBX and Live Oak Music Festival present: MAMAJOWALI! Joe Craven, Mamadou Sidibe, Walter Strauss
To hear these three musicians from far flung places collaborate is to take in three souls, listening and greeting one another in a universal language – seamlessly interweaving two continents and three bright musical sensibilities. The blend of kamale ngoni (the hunter’s harp) with six string guitar, percussion, fiddle, mandolin and singing – is uncommon and familiar while traditional and innovative – all at the same time. This new “Afromericana” project places each of these respected N. CA based artists in a new sound of common ground.
