Bai Kamara Jr & The Voodoo Sniffers (BEL)
A warm, soulful voice, but at the same time sober and intimate. Bai Kamara Jr.’s music is a mix of soul, blues, funk, R&B and jazz influences. Bai Kamara Jr., son of Sierra Leone’s former ambassador to Brussels, who grew up in the UK and has been living in Brussels for over 25 years, is a committed singer-songwriter who does not hide his African roots. He has shared the stage with international artists such as Habib Koité, Cassandra Wilson, Rokia Traoré, Dani Klein from Vaya Con Dios, and was the opening act of Vanessa Paradis’ tour in 2014. Bai Kamara is best known for his collaboration with world star Youssou N “Dour. His versatile talent becomes manifest on his five albums, but also in songs used by Spanish director Paco Torres for the film El Vuelo Del Tren (The Magic of Hope). At Amersfoort Jazz 2018 he sparkled in the burning sun on the Koppelpoort, and this year will do so again with his band The Voodoo Sniffers at the Lieve Vrouwekerkhof.
