Mr. Sekouba Bolomba is an Ivorian reggae musician. In the tradition of jamaican roots reggae from the 70s, Sekouba combines an eclectic mix of traditional West African rhythms known as Bolomba, using djembe drums and balafons. His potent lyrics, heavy ideas, and delicate voice are laced in his music in four different languages: English, French, Malinke and Bambara. He humbly has graced stages around the globe with generous performances, including Israel, Germany, Switzerland, Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, the United States of America and Canada.

After being enriched into the roots of the Bolomba style, the young Sekouba came alive with the West African sounds of the Mandinka. Sekouba’s desire to sing came naturally but it was never a reality without the musical influence of his brother, Ismael Isaac. Sekouba’s other musical influences include, Lucky Dube, Alpha Blondy, and Bob Marley. 243695_4250615666917_1978768217_o

Sekouba’s uplifting and heartening lyrics enliven audiences with spiritual liberation and African consciousness. His debut album “I’m So Glad” was self-produced in New York City and arranged by Oscar Ankou. Sekouba’s sophomore album in 2010 “Sejo” was co-produced by Sidney Mills, Grammy award-winning reggae artist and keyboard player for the legendary reggae band Steel Pulse. The album includes outstanding liberal tracks like “Mandela” featuring Bob Marley’s guitarist Junior Marvin from The Wailers. “Mandela” is a sharp and arousing tribute to former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela, and has been well-received by international fans.

Sekouba and his band Bolumba Stylee have decorated the nation with groovy, soulful performances at venues and festivals such as Festival Nuits d’Afrique in Montreal, Canada; Abi Festival in Abidjan, Ivory Coast; Fête de la Musique in Mali; SummerStage in New York City, alongside Israeli artist Idan Raichel; NJPAC SummerStage; New Haven Music Festival; Brooklyn’s International African Arts Festival; S.O.B.’s; Shrine World Music Venue; and many more. Sekouba’s music is inspired by a conglomerate of modern day music, and the ancestral dialogue passed down to him as a descendant of a long line of griots. In one show, Sekouba’s listeners share in a universal experience. 12227056_10208321335974308_8777459754701423514_n

Sekouba is the youngest brother of Isaac Ismael, the lead singer in Ivory Coast’s best known musical group. He currently lives in New York City and is the Senior Artistic Director for the Go Africa Network 2016 (NYC).

 

Sekouba’s bio is in the May 2016 edition of L3 Magazine, North America.s #1 Urban-Caribbean online publication.

 

Sekouba’s next album ”Imagine” will be released in early 2017.

About

Artist / Illustrator / Fashion Designer / Card Couturier / Entrepreneur.

Brooklyn, New York native, Willie Mitchell, a truly multi-talented individual began his love for art and fashion at an early age. Willie began sketching at age four, taught by his older brother, he spent countless hours drawing shapes and figures. ” When I became a teenager, I was inspired by the fashion styles of Josephine Baker, Diana Ross, Grace Jones, Jody Watley & Madonna. I remember how I always loved their look because each of these ladies style seemed original, bold, unique & timeless.” Mitchell’s design aspirations were also influenced by famous fashion designers like (Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Rykiel, Coco Chanel, Giorgio Armani and the famous illustrator Erté.)

He attended the prestigious Parsons School of Design for two years. Shortly after he started
assisting top design houses such as (Piero Dimitri, Lawrence Stephens, and Fila.) His credits also
include working for (Victoria’s Secret, Liz Claiborne & Francois Hendy.) “The experience of working
for these wonderful company’s helped me immensely and strengthen my ambition of starting my own
business and giving back. “In 1993, Willie’s hard work ethic started paying off when Essence
Magazine featured a ‘Willie Mitchell’ original design for their spring bride’s issue. That same year,
his illustrations were featured alongside top designers in Harriett Cole’s wedding planner, ‘Jumping
The Broom’ also HX Magazine June 2007 issue.’ In addition, several of his fashion illustrations have
been featured on daytime’s award winning soap opera (‘As The World Turns.’)

In recent years, Mitchell’s work has been shown in many galleries, boutiques, arts & crafts shows in
New York and other parts of the United States. His work is currently being sold in places like
(Etcetera Gifts & Harlem Flo Flora Atelier) showing whimsical
fashion forward greeting cards and paintings in 3-D format. Willie continues to collaborate with other Visual
Artists & Designers on various projects in addition to participating in and producing Art Exhibitions,
Fashion & Trade shows. Check back for upcoming events, projects and locations.

About Us

2010 Nubian Stylez 20 Year Anniversary
HOTEP

Born in 1990, out of 11 African American dread and bald head caricatures (identified as 360 degrees of Black Staff) and a t-shirt collection of African American hip hop word designz (Flavas) Nubian Stylez has evolved from the “word on the street” into the “fashion statement for people of color“, and now today has become the “uniform of the afrikan conscious for African Americans.”

Throughout this evolution Nubian Stylez has led the way thru the African American t-shirt jungle with cutting edge images of Afrikan American heroes and sheroes, with the most powerful of historical quotes and political messages via African American t-shirts.  With over 100 designz of unisex African American t-shirts and over 50 designz of African American fitted ladies t-shirts the focus of Nubian Stylez is on teaching through impact and information.  All the while being the visual instructor of our history, and always remaining true to OUR AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURE.

Summarizing the African American Nubian Stylez experience it is one that is a “hands on” learned experience that is inclusive of multiple years of experience as a senior retail executive for Federated department stores, The Gallery Mall at Market East in Philadelphia, and Plymouth Meeting Mall in Plymouth Meeting, PA, while also being a part-time street vendor on 125thStreet in Harlem.  As owner, operator, and founding partner (House of Nubian) on Broadway in the village of New York, the original House of Nubian in Military Circle Mall (Norfolk, VA), “Here It Tiz” House of Nubian in the Salem Mall (Dayton, Ohio), House of Nubian – Sugarland Mall(Houston, Texas),  House of Nubian of Metro Tech Mall (Brooklyn, NY), House of Nubian – Mondiamond Mall (Baltimore, MD), House of Nubian Cherry Hill Mall, (Cherry Hill, NJ), and “The Soul Brothers Boutique” in Harlem, NY.
