A collaboration between a rapper, beatboxer, singer-songwriter and guitarist from Syracuse, NY and an electrifying African kora sensation from Guinea. Their music is a musical blending of hip-hop, spoken word, funk and soulful rock with Afrobeat, reggae and irrepressible African groves. Driscoll speaks no French, and Kouyate, little English. Brought together at the Nuit Metis (Mixed Night) festival in Marseille, France in 2010 and given a week to produce a concert, music was the only way they could communicate. It turns out, they have a lot to “talk” about! Their collaboration led to the formation of a band, the recording of an album, over 120 concert dates across Europe and rave reviews. At BRIC House they will perform as a duo.
