Akinola Sennon started attending the Joseph School of the Arts in 1991 fromage seven, learning to play the cuatro and studying the theory of music. He then moved on to playing two other instruments, the guitar and the piano at the said music school in Siparia, under the tutelage of Mr. Ashford Joseph. By age ten, Akinola was arranging musical compositions for his sibling to perform at our school concerts and recitals, since they all attended the same school.
Akinola Sennon started playing the steelpan in Standard Three with Mr Roland ‘Moose’ Joseph and at that point, he fell deeply in love with the instrument. During this time, he also played the guitar with the school and church choir. Miss Valdez, the school choir Mistress, was quite a huge influence in developing his musical ability. Mr Joseph nurtured his talent during that early period by taking him to many competitions and exposing us to the steelpan fraternity. Akinola Sennon remembers Mr Roland ‘Moose’ Joseph taking him to Pantrinbago’s Annual General Meetings and introducing him to various persons.
Akinola Sennon joined Siparia Deltones in 1996 for the Panorama season and also the Stage Side. It was there that he met Mr Carlton ‘Zanda’ Alexander. Akinola vividly remembers him asking him one day, “Young man, do you know your scales?” to which Akinola Sennon said “Yes.” He then instructed him, “Play me this scale,” which Akinola did. He then replied, “Ok, well do you know your chord scales?” Akinola again answered, “Yes.”He instructed, “Well play me this chord scale.” Akinola played the scale and he then requested him to play him the same chord scale from the 2nd inversion and that was where the trouble started. That was the beginning of a 17 year old relationship. Akinola has been his understudy since then.
Akinola Sennon was inducted as a member of the Coal Pot band which was led by Mr. Zanda. This band was basically a Kaiso/Jazz fusion ensemble with horns, vocals, piano, bass guitar and steelpan. We performed extensively at all the leading jazz and fusion shows throughout the nation, including Tobago Jazz Festival, San Fernando Jazz Festival, Sanch Apri Carnival, Siparia Jazz Festival, Point Jazz Festivaland many more. At age 18, he also began playing with Clive Alexander, Carlton’s older brother. This was also quite an experience and has significantly contributed to his overall development, especially our weekly performances at the Satchmo’s Jazz club on Ariapita Avenue for a number of months.
In 2003, Akinola Sennon became the captain of Siparia Deltones’ junior band and later went on to become the captain of the senior band. He has worked with the National Steel Symphony Orchestra for one year and the Pan in the Classroom Unit. Akinola Sennon has taught at Forest Reserve Anglican School, Fyzabad Presbyterian School, Iere High school, Palo Seco Government School and Trinidad Renaissance Preparatory School.
In 2009, Akinola played the role of the musical director for steel pan promotion in Canada, where, Siparia Deltones and I, did workshops throughout the country.
As an Arranger, he has composed for the Southern Marines Steel band Foundation placing 3rdin the Small Band Category of the Panorama competition of 2010. He won the Primary School category of the Sanfest Competition for four years in a row from 2010; three times with Forest Reserve Anglican School and one year with Trinidad Renaissance Preparatory School of which he is their musical director. Akinola Sennon also won the Pan for Blue Competition with Forest Reserve Anglican School in 2013.
He is presently the executive director and musical director of Siparia Deltones, where our intention is to have this instrument evolved globally. The designer of the band’s syllabus and course structure is what he is. Together with his band, Siparia Deltones, in 2013, they recorded an album with Hugh Masekela for which Akinola Sennon played the role of Project Coordinator and steelpan soloist.
Earlier this year, he travelled to the Netherlands to participate in the Amsterdams Conservatorium Van Summer Jazz Workshop where he is the first pan player to be accepted to be part of the prestige workshop. After that experience in the Netherlands, Akinola Sennon made a decision that the world should hear his voice more loudly via his pan. For whilst there he usually was approached and asked about his upcoming tours and albums due to students being overwhelmed by his playing ability. Akinola made the decision to do his first album, a project of the Deltones Institute of Steel Drums and music in collaboration with Berklee College, New England conservatory and Manhattan School of music students. Then he journeyed to the States where he auditioned students for the project.
This project was called Cousoumeh which received a record label contract from leading label Ropeadope Records. He also developed the concept of the album into a festival called the Cousoumeh festival. Both the album and the festival have been very successful thus far.
Akinola Sennon continues to work in the area of steelpan development, arranging and music education.

Femi Koya BIO

A story of migration from the West to the South – resonates in his music, which creates a conscious dialogue between West African and South African sounds. This musical fusion demonstrates the path to a new and culturally integrated Africa in which a common heritage
is reinforced to meet the needs of today’s world. His quest is for African unity at a time when he believes Africa should claim its rightful and proud place in the world.

Femi Koya’s debut album “Just in Newtown” is evidence of the rich melodies that result from this fusion. Through his versatility on the saxophone, he breathes new life into African world music. “Iba” meaning “Homage” is the title of Femi Koya’s album which was launched in August 2015. The Iba album also calls for African unity and makes a plea for human rights to be respected. But the album also
celebrates Africa’s love of life with infectious dance numbers that bring fans to their feet. His Iba album also features the Soweto Gospel Choir, Pops Mohamed, Stompie Manana, Prince Lengoase and Kenny Mataba and poetry by Pitika Ntuli and Lisa Combrinck.

His 2018 album .Village Afrobeat is an African party, jazzed up with Afrobeat’s horn arrangements, with talking drum and percussions driving the African heartbeat. Songs such as Babalawo, Lerato, Alo and Kongo enable new generations to understand the significance of the African unity as well as providing a nostalgic look at village culture and its life lessons.
The songs tell stories of what happens in villages and especially in fables, with animals like the tortoise, the role of the town criers, village men and women as part of the whole village lifestyle. The songs also depict nature, fertility, rituals, change of seasons and traditions essential to village life. 2019, he is re – releasing a remix EP “Ori Mi” and Single “Iba” in June 2019 following with a world tour.

His musical influences include Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Manu di Bango, Hugh Masekela,Baaba Maal and Sonny Rollins. He has shared the stage with Youssou N’dour and Yvonne Chaka Chaka at the CAF (Confederation of African Football Awards) in Lagos and with John Legend in his first South African tour in Cape Town. He performed alongside the king of Juju music, Sunny Ade, at the Glo launch in the Republic of Benin. Other colourful festivals felt Femi Koya’s acrobatic music, where he performed alongside the Wynton Marsalis, Oliver Mtukudzi, Habib Koite, Salif Keita, Baaba Maal. He has recorded with Simphiwe Dana, Pops Mohamed ,Yvonne Chaka Chaka, and performed with Baaba Maal, Angelique Kidjo, Wizkid just to mention a few.
Other events where Femi Koya has laid his marks include, RSA Department of Arts and Culture and dedicated a song to the Haitian people. Femi Koya was part of the Radio 2000 song for Madiba. Starred the Joburg Theatre Africa day celebrations 2015, payed tribute to
Fela Kuti with Lura of Cape Verde, Abena Koomson NY/Ghana, Lira and Ringo Madlingozi of South Africa.

Magasin du Cafe – SAMSARA

Hypnotics is the definition that best suits them… This is the Magasin du Café!
Something explosive that wasn’t there yet and finally arrived. A mixture of elegance and energy, grace and effrontery, style and vehemence enclosed in a spiritual vortex. Their choice to do acoustic live performances in uncontaminated places, in the high mountains or in the most remote forests on the border between Italy and France is because of this desire to merge as much as possible with the mother of all mothers: NATURE.
Music that speaks to us of ancient traditions, in which the great North mixes with the East, the shamanic songs of America and Africa become modern. The sound is universal, the influences are exotic but without geographical connotation, they mix rock, jazz, and fusion, in a dialogue between four unprecedented musicians!

BIO

Magasin du Café was born in 2012 as a side project of the components, with a strong vocation for street art.
At first it becomes a way to explore intimate and ironic bistro music, ancient music to be recovered. The transition to world music was natural, looking more and more for the common roots of music and drawing from the common cultural baggage that ranges from classical to fusion, from folk to rock. Magasin du Café is striking for its ability to interpret very different genres, thanks to a highly respectable technical background.
Over the years their language has become unique and unitary, as has their sound. With the release of Samsara, their first completely unreleased record, the themes have become more mature, the result of the mix of styles that the musicians bring to the stage.
Magasin du Café project now has a more intimate and conceptual soul, but very enjoyable and exciting. In different situations they play acoustic live in uncontaminated places, in the high mountains or in the most remote woods on the border between Italy and France, for the desire
to blend as much as possible with the mother of all mothers, the Nature.
Their concerts are meditative and often manage to bring the audience into an almost hypnotic state. Music that speaks to us of distant traditions, in which the great North mixes with the East, the shamanic songs of America and Africa become modern. The sound is universal, the sounds are exotic but without geographical connotation, they mix with rock, jazz, fusion, in an unprecedented dialogue between the four musicians.
