UFLive! with Bourema “Ibrahim” Ouedraogo & Jason Finkelman
Bourema “Ibrahim” Ouedraogo and Jason Finkelman are Urbana-Champaign-based artists who perform original songs informed by Ouedraogo’s musical origins in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Ouedraogo is a singer / songwriter whose work reflects his upbringing in a family of musicians, memory of his home city, and inspiration from diasporic African arts in the United States. Accompanying Ouedraogo on calabash and congas, kalimbas and berimbau, Finkelman hails from Philadelphia where he was first introduced to African and Brazilian percussion by Adimu Kuumba whose handcrafted instruments are featured in several songs.
