Bai Kamara Jr. & Voodoo Sniffers (B)

Bai Kamara Jr.

A warm, funky voice, but just as sober and intimate. Bai Kamara Jr's music is a mix of soul, blues, funk, R&B and jazz influences. Bai Kamara Jr, son of the former Sierra Leonean ambassador in Brussels, who grew up in the United Kingdom and has lived in Brussels for over 25 years, is a committed singer-songwriter who reveals his African origins in his music. He has shared the stage with international artists such as Habib Koité, Cassandra Wilson, Rokia Traoré, was the opening act of Vanessa Paradis’ ‘LOVE ALBUM’ INTERNATIONAL TOUR in 2014 (25 dates) and sang in duo with Dani Klein from Vaya Con Dios as well as being her supporting act. His involvement with NGOs has led to a collaboration with the world star Youssou N’Dour. Two of Bai’s songs were recorded by the Spanish director Paco Torres for the film El Vuelo Del Tren (The Magic of Hope). Bai is a brilliant composer who shows his very diverse musical talent in his 5 albums (Living Room, Urban Gipsy, Disposable Society, This Is Home and Mystical Survivors). His next CD ‘SALONE’ will be released in 2020.
