Afri-kokoa is proud to present the debut live performance by one of the very best contemporary new african acts of 2016. The Kondi Band is blind thumb piano player and singer Sorie Kondi from Sierra Leone with Rio-based New York producer Chief Boima. Boima saw this original video of Sorie which inspired him to get in touch and start a collaboration. The album forges a direct link between Techno born in the black cities of the American Midwest (where Boima grew up) and roots African music. Sorie Kondi may be playing an acoustic folk instrument from Sierra Leone, but he thinks about music as if he were a techno producer.
