Beat Research :: Maga Bo & Chief Boima

@ Beat Research on March 31 >>

Maga Bo’s sound is a divine (s)mashup of batucada, rai, capoeira, bhangra, and skewed electronic beats in a borderless conundrum of gritty street sounds, found and modified rhythms and melodies from Brazil, Morocco, Senegal, India and beyond. DJing and producing tracks with a portable laptop studio, he has worked and performed in North and South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe.

Coming from the Bay Area and descendant from the ancient clan of the Sherbro-Germans of Milwaukee, Chief Boima, is constantly traveling the world trying to recreate the African house party for new and willing audiences. Also a member of the Aussie-Ameri-Swede band Beaten By Them, and Afro-Latino hip hop duo Chief y Chango, diversity in the mix is essential for this DJ-Cellist extraordinaire.
