AMP Concerts presents the inaugural World Music Week presented around the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. World Music Week kicks off with the beloved Market Artist welcome on the Santa Fe Plaza on July 5. Enjoy great international and local artists throughout the week, including a chance to see Kombilesa Mí at the very first Night Market on July 9.  

Hailing from Palenque, the first free black town in the Americas, the hip-hop group Kombilesa Mí overlays traditional Colombian rhythms and instruments with lyrics in both Spanish and the local language, Palenquero. The result is an electrifying fusion of Palenquero music and urban rap. Proud of their heritage and passionate about music, Kombilesa Mí (Palenquero for "My Friends") represents the voice of a new generation of Colombian musicians. 

Wassa Ensemble, based in Santa Fe, consists of 5-8 artists primarily from Guinea, West Africa. Ibrahima "Soriba" Fofana leads the group, who have been performing locally and around the US since 2010. 

The ensemble performance begins with melodies and songs on the N'goni harp, with Calabash and Gongoma percussion, taking a journey into the heart of Africa. 

Continuing on, the ensemble brings intricate Djembe solo rhythms, heavy bass Dundun drums accompanied by fiery dance and acrobatics, mesmerizing audiences in a display of pure energy. 

"Wassa Wassa" is a cry of celebration translated as Happy Happy! The ensemble aims to portray the essence and spirit of West African dance and music.
