Marafani World Beat (formerly known as Kikeyambay Electric) is a Victoria, British Columbia-based musical project led by Guinean percussionist and vocalist Alseny Michel Diallo- famed master drummer and singer from Guinea West Africa. Diallo's passion for and knowledge of both traditional and modern Guinean music has inspired a group of Victoria musicians to form a modern and dynamic Afro-fusion electric band.
Marafani's World Beat's exciting contemporary fusion of traditional West African, reggae, and world beat music always gets people on the dance floor! Marafani has headlined at Victoria's Inner Harbour Canada Day 2014 celebration, the Seattle World Rhythm Festival, Edge of the World Music Festival in Haida Gwaii, and the Diversity Festival on Texada Island, as well as many other festivals and venues.

Korasonic- Korasonic is the Canadian duo of Doug Galbraith and Dan Beer who perform original and adapted music inspired by the globe’s coolest genres. Their music has a clear element of the contemporary deftly combined with old-world music, rhythms and instruments. Korasonic creatively blends together influences of house, jazz, dub and ethnic styles like West African guitar, Ethiopian groove and Brazilian rhythms. Galbraith and Beer's multi-decade experience and deep understanding of various world musics give them an immense source of material to draw on and extrapolate from all done with authenticity and musicianship. https://soundcloud.com/korasonic
