Saturday, April 8th 8:00pm
Harrison Memorial Hall
Montréal-based band from Chad, H’Sao, has been capturing the hearts of
small audiences and large crowds alike since 2001. The band has always
been passionate about sharing its unique blend of modern sound and
traditional African musical influences. H’Sao has gone on to travel the world,
delivering electrifying performances, launching three innovative albums
and, most of all, developing a musical signature that spans several
genres and thus transcends the “world music” category.
At first, the voices–but what voices!–were their only instruments.
brothers Caleb (guitar), Mossbass (bass) and Izra L (keyboard) along
with their childhood friend Dono (drums) added musical instruments to
their rich and inspired compositions. Today, the self-taught musicians
continue to weave the impressive a cappella harmonies for which they are
known into their powerful live performances. These seasoned
musician-singers have stayed true to their roots, drawing from gospel,
soul, R&B, reggae and Chadian music. The result is as skillful and
heartfelt as it is unique.
With over a decade of Canada-wide touring behind them, H'Sao is now
one of Canada's most established and best loved African bands. They are
festival favourites at Harrison, and we welcome them back!
Here's a nice video of the group and their song Taryam.
