CHIEF BOIMA is a Sierra Leonean-American electronic musician/DJ, cultural activist, and writer currently based in New York. He is a member of the Brooklyn based music, arts, and culture collective, Dutty Artz. He also has contributed to various music and culture online and print publications such as Ghetto Bassquake, Africa is a Country, WFMU Radio, and The Fader Magazine.

As a resident of Little Baobab in San Francisco and as a touring club DJ (in Europe, Africa, North America, and Australia) he has become a respected figure in the promotion of various local styles from around the globe such as Coupe Decale, Cumbia, Kuduro, and Champeta.

The past few years Boima has immersed himself in the world of music production, and has released original tracks and remixes alone as well as part of the duo Banana Clipz with DJ Oro 11. He’s also done numerous collaborations with folks like DJ Orion, Lamin Fofana, DJ Rupture, Matt Shadetek, and Uproot Andy, as well as producing tracks for international singers and rappers such as Los Rakas, Black Nature of the Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars, and Khady Black.

NGOMA SOUNDSYSTEM is Dj Zhao + Marcel (djembes, congas, bells, shakers)

A versatile musical entity consisting of dj and live percussion, NGOMA Soundsystem fuses ancestral rhythms, acoustic textures, and urban bass pressure. Drawing upon the wealth of traditions from Africa and beyond and informed by up-to-the-minute street sounds worldwide, NGOMA Soundsystem exists in the tension between live improvisation and electronic composition, creating “ancient-futurist” musical spaces as rewarding for the ear as they are effective on dance floors small and large.
