Cody ChestnuTT was universally hailed as a thrilling new figure in music for his edgy, lo-fi debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, back in 2002. He’s a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious ruminations on life continue to challenge popular notions of what modern soul music can look and sound like. Most recently, ChestnuTT’s song “What does Freedom Mean” was featured in the all-star soundtrack inspired by the award-winning movie, Twelve Years a Slave.

Bombino, Omara "Bombino” Moctar, is a Tuareg guitarist/singer whose recent Nonesuch release was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. His raw, dialed-up jams are rooted in the electric blues tradition of his nomadic people. Hailing from Niger, Bombino has an infectious and wholly original sound, with a sense of wisdom and ability to connect with those around him.

Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars members first joined forces in refugee camps while their homeland was being racked by years of bloody warfare. The band members overcame struggle with the redemptive power of music. Fusing traditional West African music with roots reggae, the band’s catalogue is full of bubbling rhythms, irresistible hooks, and intricate dub elements. They have become one of Africa’s most active touring bands, embraced by audiences worldwide for their unique sounds and utterly extraordinary story.Press Info: http://www.cumbancha.com/slras-biography-eng/
