Oumar Sagna and Sindoolaa African Music Band

Oumar Sagna and Sindoolaa African Music Band

My band's name is Oumar Sagna and Sindoolaa. We would like to play anywhere in the world.

Preferences would be in this order:
Asia (China, Japan)
Anywhere in America, Canada and South America.

Here is a youtube video:

In 2005, I released my first music recording and subsequently formed the Sindoolaa African Music band. Calling on influences from my home village of Diatock, Casamance (Southern Senegal), the music fuses traditional West African and contemporary roots, enrapturing audiences with a unique sound. The band was just filmed by The Africa Channel in Chicago, a one hour show that will be broadcast worldwide. Sindoolaa will be releasing a second CD and a DVD this year.

Sindoolaa music band is composed of musicians native of Senegal (West Africa) and Milwaukee (Wisconsin, USA ), where it is based. The current Sindoolaa members are Oumar Sagna on lead vocals, ekonting, percussions, kalimba and balaphon, Olusegun Sijuwade and/or Aaron Gardner on Sax and flute, Carl Nichols on rhythm guitar, Jeff Green on lead guitar and second vocals, the two wonderful dancers Miriam Levie and Naima Adedapo on second vocals, John Simons on Bass (Bass substitutes: Patrick patterson and Theodore Stribling), Jeffrey 'Omar' Phillips on drum set, Yaya Kambaye or Keba Diebate on Kora, kotiro drums and tama (talking drum), Patrice Nassalang on masquerade dance, Mohamed Sene on Sabar drums and Bougarabou. Not only does Sindoolaa play original music from Oumar's cultural background, but it also brings you African Reggae and Salsa, Soucouss music, and more. Sindoolaa music keeps you on the dance floor all night.

In Senegal I work with Batiyaye, my homeland based band.
