Gambia's master percussionist with horn-driven eight-piece Afrojazz outfit. Dancing time!

After his tour of Europe over the summer, Musa MBoob, master percussionist, returns with hot Gambian rhythms, and re-unites with JOKO, eight-piece Afrojazz horn-driven outfit. Great joyful jazzy dancing stuff! It's them drums!

Formerly with Ifang Bondi, Musa works as a cultural ambassador promoting Gambian music both in Gambia and in the UK and Europe. Musa played with Alan Skidmore and Ubizo, then formed Xamxam with Ousman Beyai (former Ifang Bondi member). He is involved in many projects helping to bring musicians together from Europe and the Gambia.
