Bakoomba is a collective of nine talented musicians consisting of a hard-driving rhythm section, slick horns and sassy female vocals covered in a layer of tasty percussion.
Experience their unique and adventurous style - Tight, dynamic arrangements and killer solos that build into a powerful wall of solid Fusion grooves.
Fode spent twenty years travelling the globe as an artist before calling Australia home - which includes being a principal performer in Senegal's leading dance and percussion troupe Bakalama.
