Bambara Trans

Origin: France, Morocco, Canada

Genre: World

Bambara Trans is made up of musicians from various backgrounds (Morocco, France, Québec and Nova Scotia). The band offers an upbeat blend of frenetic rhythms and festive sonorities, with a lineup that includes a saxophone, a flute, keyboards, bass, guitar and percussion. Founded in 2006 by husky-voiced singer Khalil Abouabdelmajib-also a master of the guembri, a North African guitar made of camel skin-this multiethnic band was a fan favourite at the 2007 Festival des Musiques du Maghreb and at the 2008 Festival Musique Multi-Montréal. Bambara Trans released its first CD in 2008.
