Musa Mboob & XamXam 
Musa Mboob & XamXam aim to bring you the perfect blend of traditional West African music with a modern twist. Musa Mboob made it his aim in life to continue the family tradition of playing percussion and promoting traditional music from The Gambia. In 2007 he took a group of musicians to The Gambia where they worked with four different tribes, each with their own distinct style. Upon returning to the England he set up the band XamXam to showcase the new music that was created from this project. Over the following years the band has developed and played a number of concerts & festivals around the UK. In 2017 Musa returned to The Gambia with a new set of musicians and once again returned with a collection of new songs that capture the Gambian vibe. Throughout 2017 the band were showcasing the music with an album of the new songs coming out in 2018 which we hope to fully tour around West Africa and Europe.
