Weedie Braimah + The Hands of Time
Weedie Braimah + The Hands of Time
This eclectic ensemble of highly regarded internationally acclaimed musicians was founded in 2016 by Band Leader and Composer, Weedie Braimah. Braimah, a phenomenally talented and highly sought-after Djembe Fola whose vision is to build a reverence for folkloric West African music in hopes of it evolving and being placed in the world musical arenas of jazz, funk, fusion, world music, and hip hop, is a new face of African percussion both nationally and internationally.

This astounding folkloric orchestra mounts percussion as the frontage presenting music of the diaspora focusing on instruments such as Kora, Ngoni, Balafon, Djembe, Dunun, Tama, Sabar, Bass, and Electric Guitar creating new sounds and boundaries like none before.

Weedie Braimah and the Hands of Time exemplifies tradition, evolution and soul. They are a highly engaging, inspirational and entertaining orchestra that is sure to awaken the African Soul defying the laws of gravity all in the hands of time.

“I’ve got to go where I am in life not because of something I brought to the world but through something I found – the wealth of African culture. - Hugh Masekela
Les Amis
Les Amis
Les Amis is an Asheville NC based Live Dance Band made up of some people who live in Asheville. When these people play music together they generally play their rendition of West African – Ivory Coast Traditional Dance Music. These people also play music with other people.

Two of them play music with a band called Toubab Krewe.
Two of them play music with a band called Zansa.
One of them plays with the a band called the AED (Asheville Ecstatic Dance) Ensemble.
Together we are Les Amis (The Friends).

We play music together and we are Friends. Sometimes other people play music with Us. We call these people "the friends" as well. You might remember that from a French class or some International Film you saw that the words Les Amis are French for “The Friends”. All of these people like to get together and play Live Dance Music for other people to dance to and with the music they make. Les Amis would like to thank Mr. L. Amis and Mr. P. T'hetipjar for their continued patronage.
