The Center For The Arts Presents From The Center: Fula Brothers (Mamadou Sidibe & Walter Strauss)
Friday, February 26, 2021
Live Broadcast: 7:00 - 8:00pm PT
ABOUT THE BAND: FULA BROTHERS
A high spirited meeting of veteran performers from West Africa and America, Fula Brothers weave West African hunters harp, fingerstyle guitar, vocals, and a bounty of improvisation into an ecstatic groove based dialogue which the heart – and the feet – cannot resist. Master kamale ngoni player, Mamadou Sidibe, is from the Wassoulou region of Mali, West Africa. He played a groundbreaking role in the transformation of this region’s music from its origins in hunters’ sacred melodies – played on six string donso ngoni (hunter’s harps) – to a music of philosophy, politics, and daily life. Mamadou, with artists Coumba Sidibe and Oumou Sangare, spread the new sounds through Europe, Africa, and the US. Fingerstyle guitarist Walter Strauss’s multi-layered style draws on cultural guitar traditions – Spanish, American roots, classical, jazz. He has performed from New York to Glasgow and Bamako, and his collaborators have ranged from multi-instrumentalist Joe Craven to Grammy-winning kora player Mamadou Diabate and Scottish fiddler Johnny Hardie.
