Celebrating the love affair between Africa and the East Bay, CA, the IMAGINE:Nation Trio breaks new musical ground in forging a profound connection between the traditional music of the Motherland with its New World progeny: soul, folk and funk.

Featuring innovative guitarist Nicco Tyson (Malikan, Studio Nanou), globe-trotting percussionist Robert “Bobby” Wallace (Bonnie Raitt, Margareth Menezes, Airto Moreira), and Malian Kora virtuoso Karamo Susso (Toumani Diabate, Ballake Sissoko), IMAGINE:Nation creates a lush tapestry of ancient Malian songs, acoustic soul songs exploring current life in Oakland, and daring improvisation.
