ZubopGambia is a collaboration between London-based worldbeat music group Zubop and the West African master musicians Mosi Conde (vocals, kora, balafon, guitar, djembe) and Njega Sohna (djembe, talking drum, vocals).

ZubopGambia brings together the musical interests and influences of everyone involved - the performance includes not only traditional West African pieces, but elements of jazz, township music, pop, reggae, blues and many other styles. The Observer made their new release CD of the week, praising it as “irresistible, high spirited and full of fun" and fRoots magazine wrote “there’s a spark about it all which is downright infectious.”

Two successful UK tours have been conducted with support from Arts Council England, the PRS Foundation and SETA.
