Ausecuma Beats On The Good, The Dub & The Global
Systa BB chats with Boubacar Gaye, bandleader and master djembe player of Melbourne nine-piece ensemble Ausecuma Beats. Boubacar discusses how they’ve stayed creative during the pandemic lockdown, how the idea for their name came about (hint: Ausecuma is made up of the first two letters from each of the countries the band members hail from), and the upcoming November release of their debut LP, out soon through local artists’ initiative Music In Exile. The band's sound is showcased in the album's lead single "Yelena"; head this way to have a listen.
