Nov. 9, 2014 — Joe Craven with Mamajowali

Next up….

MamajowaliSeamlessly interweaving two continents and three bright musical sensibilities, Mamajowali is Joe Craven, Mamadou Sidibe, and Walter Strauss–three veteran musicians who have found common ground in a new and unique sound.

Their blend of kamale ngoni (the hunter’s harp) with six-string guitar, percussion, fiddle, mandolin, and singing is traditional, innovative, and uncommon–all at the same time. Mamajowali overlays West African music, old-time Americana, and spirited originals with hoppin’ high energy grooves and tons of improvisational trialogue.  Come listen to a sound you’ve never heard–“Afromericana!”

Also appearing is Hattie Craven, Joe’s 13-year-old daughter–already an accomplished actor,singer, songwriter.
