AUSECUMA BEATS: BOUBACAR GAYE INTERVIEW

Australian Musician editor Greg Phillips catches up with Boubacar Gaye from 9 piece world music ensemble Ausecuma Beats to talk about Bouba’s musical roots and their new self-titled album.

Ausecuma Beats are more than just a band, they are a philosophy. Led by master djembe player, Boubacar Gaye, the nine-strong ensemble, demonstrate artists coming together based on an idea – the idea of place, of transplanting cultural heritage into a contemporary city. Ausecuma Beats is people from all corners of the world finding themselves together in new environments, as a community.

Ausecuma Beats demonstrate what can happen when a group of artists come together based on an idea – in this case, the idea of place, of transplanting cultural heritage into a contemporary city. The band showcase what happens when people from the farthest flung corners of the world find themselves living shoulder to shoulder in a new environment. The result – nine unique individuals, each masters of their own craft and with their own personal histories, working together to create something that can be called their own.

The band on this recording includes Bassidy Kone, Yusupha Ngum, Mohamad Camara, Boubacare Gaye, Luke Koszanki, William Larsen, Rodolfo Panga, Sonu Sangameswaren and Ed Croker.
