The phenomenal Afro-fusion group H’SAO will be performing at The Purple Crayon in Hastings-on-Hudson on December 6, 2014 from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm. H’SAO is defined by the strength of its voices and vocal harmonies as well as its energetic performances.
H’SAO is a Montréal-based band from Chad. They have traveled the world performing for both intimate audiences and large crowds alike. Most notably, H’SAO has performed for the Queen of England for a Canada Day celebration. During their years abroad writing and performing music, they have drawn influences from music of many different cultures. Through borrowing concepts from gospel, soul, R & B, reggae, and Chadian music, H’SAO has created a unique genre of music that transcends all of “world music.”
When they started out, H’SAO performed Acappella, but soon after writing some more songs, added instrumentation to their compositions. Today, the self-taught musicians weave their impressive voices and vocal harmonies into their powerful live performances. Ten years after the release of their first album, H’SAO launched their newest album entitled Oria. The level of social commitment expressed on this third album is a tribute to the impressive journey that led up to its creation. Sounding better than they ever have, H’SAO will be sharing their talent with Hastings-on-Hudson at The Purple Crayon.
