LIVE @ CHRISTINA: OPENING NIGHT WITH AJOYO WORLD MUSIC ENSEMBLE

Headed by French-Tunisian saxophonist, clarinetist and composer, Yacine Boularès, Ajoyo blends sounds of African tradition, jazz and soul with the silken vocals of Sarah Elizabeth Charles. Tickets for the performance are $23 and are available at ccacde.org.

"Our music stems from West and North African rhythmic traditions - Fela Kuti, Salif Keita, Oum Kalthoum and many more," says Boularès. "But we also bring a lot of our individual experience as musicians. The sum of it all is an upbeat, eclectic brew of jazz, soul, African rhythms and indie rock."

Last appearing at CCAC in May 2018, Ajoyo happily returns to downtown Wilmington for a repeat performance. "On tour, we tend to develop special relationships with certain audiences, and CCAC was definitely one of them," Boularès says.

Ultimately, he says, Ajoyo is about creating music for the mind, for the heart, and for the body. "You'll definitely want to stand up and dance," he says.
