World Music Concerts
August 11: Mal Maiz
The exuberant traditions of Afro-Caribbean rhythms woven with Central American tunes are the signature sounds for the Latin dance band Mal Maiz. A native of Costa Rica, band frontman Brujo Maiz Vargas Sandoval, blends traditional Cumbia, Latin, and Reggae motifs into a tapestry of world music with a contemporary and energetic twist.
Currently based in Burlington, Mal Maiz came to the forefront of the east coast music scene by gaining acclaim at VPR’s Live From the Fort’s New Voices Project. Mal Maiz brings boundless energy and undeniably unique sound to the stage.
August 18: Sabouyouma
Sabouyouma is a high energy 6-piece polyrhythmic groove machine that formed through ongoing musical relationships in Burlington, Vermont’s vibrant West-African dance and drumming scene. Sabouyouma is led by Guinean-born Ousmane Camara: the band’s front man, composer, and master Balafonist (the Balafon is a West-African marimba). Sabouyouma has opened for nationally touring acts like The Toots and the Maytals, Moon Hooch, Xenia Rubinos, Polyrhythmics, Ikebe Shakedown, and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra.
Ousmane Camara is a 6th generation Griot. Historically, in West Africa, Griots passed messages from the king throughout the kingdom before the use of pen and paper. Griots continue to play an important role in Africa today as poets, musicians, singers, and historians, preserving their ancient traditions through song. At the age of seven, Ousmane left his family’s home to go live with his teacher, Djeli Sana Camara. He would study and play balafon with his teacher for the next fifteen years. Ousmane continued to play throughout Guinea and traveled through nine other African countries. He has subsequently taught students from around the world.
