The four members of 19-Twenty stand on a stage with a packed audience behind them. The crowed is cheering and excited.


Ausecuma Beats are more than just a band, they are a philosophy. Led by their bandleader and master djembe player, Boubacar Gaye, the ensemble demonstrates what can happen when a group of artists come together based on an idea-in this case, the idea of transplanting cultural heritage into a contemporary city. The band showcase what happens when people from the farthest corners of the world find themselves living shoulder to shoulder in a new environment.
