January 23, 2016 at Bissap Baobab Oakland in Oakland.
First show of 2016 from Oakland‘s No.1 World Percussion Party!
Fresh back from our scintillating romp through Havana, Cuba, Oakland-based percussinists BOBBY WALLACE and BEN ISAACS will be joined by sonic tour-de-force DAMIEN MASTERSON on harmonica, saxophone and melodica!!
Bobby and Ben bring 40+ years of percussion experience, having played with Airto Moreira, Badu Diop, Giovanni Hidalgo, Salif Kone and Margareth Menezes. B&B’s repetoire includes traditional material from Cuba, Brazil, Guinee and Mali as well as original, back-beat compositions from right here in OAKLAND.
Damien has returned from a two-year residency in DAKAR, SENEGAL where he performed with a multitude of Senegalese talent, including Chiekh Lo.
The night promises to include fireworks of flavor, served hot at the RHYTHM CAFE. Dance floor is open.
Downbeat is at 9pm. The show is FREE. 🙂
