The Gokh Bi System is a blend of African and Carribean influences spiced with Hip Hop. They call their sound 'Ancient Meets Urban.' Here Mamadou and Sana N'diaye talk about the origins and influences of the group's music before performing at Amherst's Northfire Recording Studio.
In these troubled political times, some, like Northampton's Joe Shaughnessy, are choosing to outmigrate, heading back to the land of their ancestors in search of a new future. For Joe, it's a scary and exciting prospect, and it's ironic that his great grandparents, who risked everything to leave Italy and come to America over a century ago, are providing him with a path to a new future.
