Friday, July 19 8-10pm $20/$18 advance
Youssoupha's music provides an entertaining cultural experience, celebrating and exploring the vitality of African culture, and appeals to audiences on any levels. Youssoupha attended the Senegalese Conservatory of Music where he developed a virtuosity as a Kora player, combining techniques from both Western, Reggae, and African Music. He is a Baay Faal, Sufi and his music is a expression of his roots. He brings the spirit of Senegal Africa with him wherever he goes.
Youssoupha was Grammy nominated for his collaboration with Matisyahu on multiple tracks, including a duet he wrote with Matisyahu on Youth, The 2007 Grammy-nominated "Best Reggae Album", which has gone gold. Through this and many other collaborations, as well as countless performances over the course of 20 years, Youssoupha has developed thousands of fans all over the world. Youssoupha has performed with many exceptional musicians, including Matisyahu, Michael Franti, India Arie, Steve Kimock, Michael Kang of String Cheese Incident, Chris Berry Trio, and Midnite. The newly released Youssoupha Sidibe and Midnite's FOR ALL is the first ever, full album collaboration of African and Caribbean Reggae. His performances are an amazing musical experience, unlike any other.
We are thrilled to have Youssoupha back performing LIVE at Om Shala Yoga, one night only!
