Description


This special shared evening brings together two uplifting bands, both of whom will nourish you in spirit and body. MaMuse will play a stirring set of folk/gospel/harmony inspiration, then Fula Brothers will light the dancefloor with a West African-California Groove experience. Expect a full heart, a lively community of dancers, and collaborative magic when the bands play together.

MaMuse :

With deep roots in the folk and gospel traditions, and their hearts in the present, MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker) create uplifting music for the next seven generations to thrive on. Interweaving brilliant and haunting harmony with lyrics born of honed emotional intelligence, MaMuse invokes a musical presence that inspires the opening of the heart. Playing a family of varied acoustic instruments including upright bass, guitar, mandolins, ukulele, and flutes, these two powerful women embody a love for all of life. The synergy that is created through this musical connection is palpable and truly moving to witness.

Fula Brothers :

Malian hunters harp player Mamadou Sidibe, guitarist Walter Strauss, drummer Kendrick Freeman

Fula Brothers is the high spirited meeting of three seasoned touring performers – each of whom has spent decades pursuing the shared heartbeat in music from around the globe. Here is a history filled with inter-continental collaborations and colorful apprenticeships, from West Africa and Scotland to Haiti and the US. Mamadou, Walter, and Kendrick weave together West African hunters harp, fingerstyle guitar, drums, vocals, and a bounty of improvisation to create an ecstatic groove-based dialogue, which the heart – and the feet – cannot resist.
