Fula Brothers • Joy and magic at the musical crossroads of West Africa and America
When Malian kamale ngoni player Mamadou Sidibe and American guitarist Walter Strauss engage in an interplay of West African hunter’s harp and finger-style guitar, the result is a deep, soulful music that is simultaneously ancient and fresh. Fula Brothers create an intoxicating and joyful sound through intertwining melodic grooves, spirited improvisation, and songs in two languages. Mamadou and Walter are each known as innovators on their instruments and have performed in the States, UK, Europe, and West Africa. They are joined by drummer Craig Bravo-Miller, whose nimble and rousing grooves elevate the spirit.
Mamadou played a groundbreaking role in transforming the popular Wassoulou music of Mali. He was the first to break with tradition by taking the ancient hunters harp outside the hunters’ ceremonies, creating the now widely used kamale ngoni. Mamadou is a master musician and improvisor, and a joy from head to toe. “… the same sensibility that you’ll find in Muddy Waters: music as a tool for the re-creation of everyday life into something special, even magical.” – Stylus
Walter’s playing draws on great guitar traditions, but what makes him utterly unique is how he has creatively engaged and woven the music of other global instruments (kora, sitar, ngoni…) into his innovative guitar style. He’s brought a distinctive voice to international collaborations with some of the great musicians of Mali, Cuba, and Scotland. “A many-layered, multi-textured, one-man folk festival.” – Maverick Magazine (UK)
