Africa OH! brings together three musical giants, all seminal and ground-breaking artists in their respective countries who have had an important impact on the musical landscape in their homelands. The legendary Taj Mahal (USA); Malouma (Mauritania); and Yacouba Moumouni (Niger)—along with Sharde Thomas and the Rising Star Fife Band—are all masters of their country’s traditional music and have gained notoriety for their mix of traditional and contemporary styles that strive to honor musical tradition while at the same time pushing its borders to create highly personal and visionary styles of their own. Africa OH! is an extraordinary musical celebration of the profound and important connections between the traditional music of West Africa and the Blues.
