Pick of the Week - Kondi Band Live in Berlin

The WOMEX 16 OFFICIAL SHOWCASE SELECTION includes many great and promising acts - one of them is for sure Kondi Band!

Kondi Band is an inspired collaboration between Sierra Leonean kondi (thumb piano) player Sorie Kondi and US producer Chief Boima, who himself has Sierra Leonean roots. The project was spawned after Boima happened upon an online video of one of Sorie’s original tracks, ‘Without Money No Family’. Struck by his characterful voice, socially-aware lyrics and incredible playing on his self-made instrument, he determined to remix it.

The result if this combination is an acoustic dance music that creates a sound as full and dynamic as any club track and, through Boima’s intricate production, the album subtly and skillfully integrates contemporary electronic sounds, keeping the simplicity and space in Sorie’s music.

Their upcoming concert in Berlin this Thursday, 6th of October 2016, at YAAM, is definately a must-see!
