Bio

MUSA M'BOOB

musa-promo4-700x300.png

Gambian master percussionist and lead vocalist Musa M'boob brings audiences an electrifying blend of Afro Manding fusion and tantalizing traditional West
African rhythms stemming from the vibrant life and cultures of the smiling coast of Africa.

 

Blending traditional instruments with modern electronic guitars to meet the demands of an international audience and a 21st century African diaspora, Musa has established a reputation as a true entertainer and a master of his art through his creativity and innovative approach to West African Music.

Musa learned his craft with 'The Gambian'; pioneers of Afro-Manding music, and the Ifang Bondi Band going on to make a name for himself with his unique style and approach to making the dance floor rock.

Musa Mboob is one of Gambia's leading percussionists and has dedicated his life to working to promote Gambian culture and share his talent with people around the world through live performances, workshops and traditional ceremonies.
