The West African Blues Project begins....
 


The story so far……….Having already built himself a reputation as a great blues guitarist (working with the likes of Eric Bibb & Boo Boo Davies, Eric Burdon, Pee Wee Ellis and founder of the Nublues project), Ramon Goose was introduced to the world of African music and was inspired by what he found.

Keen to learn more and influenced by the work of good friend Justin Adams, he set about exploring the idea of combing the beauty of West African music with the soul of Blues.


This led him to teaming up with Senegalese kora player Diabel Cissokho , a member of the renowned griot family of musicians with a rich musical heritage and known for his 3 years with Baba Maal. The result was the release of Mansana Blues an album packed full of superb soul searching melodies and well received by the media.

But it was the live performances that made the whole thing come alive taking the music right to the heart of the audience leaving them spellbound as the musicians majestically take them on a journey. After a chance meeting with Senegalese singer Modou Toure - The West African Blues

Modou Toure

Project was born.

 

This is a meeting of minds; a meeting of cultures and two styles of music that seem to blend so well together it just seems natural. No two concerts are the same as each musician takes opportunity for self expression, interacting with each other as collectively they feed off the vibe of the audience, the result being a fabulous high energy blend of intoxicating rhythm.
