H'Sao

Saturday, April 8th 8:00pm
Harrison Memorial Hall
Tickets: $22.00  

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. Then, 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.
