Musa Mboob & XamXam aim to bring you the perfect blend of traditional West African music with a modern twist.

Musa Mboob made it his aim in life to continue the family tradition of playing percussion and promoting traditional music from The Gambia. In 2007 he took a group of musicians to The Gambia where they worked with four different tribes, each with their own distinct style. Upon returning to the England he set up the band XamXam to showcase the new music that was created from this project. Over the following years Musa developed the band playing a number of live shows around the UK.

In 2017 Musa returned to The Gambia with a different group of musicians and once again returned with a collection of new songs that capture the Gambian vibe. Throughout 2017/18 the band showcased the music with an album of the new songs coming out in the summer of 2019 on the ARC Music label.

To prepare for the album release Musa took the band to The Gambia in early 2019 to work on the live set. While there they played a number of gigs, meet up with local musicians and fine tuned the live sound to get it just right. Watch out for more live performances around the UK and Europe throughout 2019/2020 as we promote the album.
