Three of my friends have been to Sierra Leone to study music and dance. They each return with different stories and one message - "Go". This past Monday (7.27.09), I got a chance to have the music and culture of Sierra Leone come to Santos - here in New York City. Mike Schreiber was kind enough to invite me to this set after we rapped about photography on Canal and Broadway.
Bajah and the Dry Eye Crew is an amazing band that hails of Sierra Leone and is bringing worthy buzz to the global arena of hip hop culture. By the time, Bajah entered the stage, the place lit up and was a frenzy of dance, rhymes, and good music that spanned an ocean. This event gets two big thumbs up because the right people were there and the energy was electric. In this video above, one of the members of the Dry Eye Crew is teaching us a new dance.
