Father Time Trio

And these drummers, who have collectively played with James Brown, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock and Bonnie Riatt, are offering a FATHERS DAY concert honoring Mamadou, Juan Jose & William, along with ALL FATHERS in a pan-African celebration of powerful percussion and cultural creativity.


The Father Time Trio features Mamadou’s son MASSAMBA DIOP, 2019 Oscar and Grammy Award winner for his signature percussion in the Marvel blockbuster film THE BLACK PANTHER. Massamba has been the principal Tama (Talking Drum) player with Senegalese superstar Baaba Maal for over 20 years, and his performing and recording credits include Herbie Hancock, James Brown and Peter Gabriel.
Juan Jose’s son EDGARDO CAMBON is the Congeuro (Conga drummer) and lead singer with CANDELA, the stalwart Bay Area salsa ensemble which has blessed the community with over 20 years of performances, recordings and great times. Edgardo has also performed with Eddie Palmeiri, Carolos Santana and Oakland’s own Rhythm Cafe.
William’s son BOBBY WALLACE is the jack-of-all-trades percussionist whose credits include work in Brazil (Margareth Menezes, Amanda Santiago, Airto Moreira), Trinidad (David Rudder, Ray Holman, Starlift Steel Orchestra) and the USA (Bonnie Riatt, Mickey Hart, John Santos). Bobby is also the charismatic leader of Oakland’s renown Rhythm Cafe.

To make this event even more enticing, this concert also features members of the All-Women’s percussion ensemble ASHOFEM, fresh of their sold-out Berkeley show in March, 2019.
