Sabouyouma is a Burlington-based Afro-Funk band led by Guinean-born balafonist, Ousmane Camara. They combine traditional West African dance music with contemporary funk and reggae. Ousmane is a 6th generation Griot: Historically, in West Africa, Griots passed messages from the king throughout the kingdom before pen and paper. Griots continue to play an important role in Africa today as poets, musicians, singers, and historians, preserving their ancient traditions through song. At the age of seven, Ousmane left his family's home to go live with his teacher, Djeli Sana Camara. He would study and play balafon with his teacher for the next fifteen years. Ousmane continued to play throughout Guinea and traveled through nine other African countries. He has subsequently taught students from around the world. WESBITE
