Gus Mancini's Sonic Soul Band
Gus Mancini, also known as The Sultan Of Sonic Soul, is a family member of the Woodstock Roundtable’s Sunday morning Radio Show on WDST at 100.1 FM. Gus has now performed on the show over 300 times, live on air, spanning 20 years and counting. The Sonic Soul Band is one of the most unique bands in the Hudson Valley because their performances are TOTALLY improvised. The Sultan, a master of improvisational saxophone, with a varied musical career spanning 60 years, has performed with many of the elite of all genres of music. Most notably he’s performed with the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra and the Hudson Valley Philharmonic and for many years in the great Cathedral of Saint John Divine in NYC. At the Cathedral, he’s been accompanied by the well known Native American contemporary group The Hawk Project.
Now what truly makes the Sonic Soul Band unique is the addition of Master Nfamara Badjie. Master Badjie is one of the very few remaining (drum)masters from Gambia, West Africa with dual citizenship in the USA. In fact, he is the only ONE in America playing the Bugaraboo drums. Nfamara is helping to keep this ancient tradition of gathering and dancing alive. Badjie has been drumming since he was 4 years old. The Sonic Soul Band creates grooves and explorations in the moment. Master Badjie plays his ancient rhythms with an unparalleled energy alongside world class improvisers weaving spontaneous musical forms ranging from modern experimental jazz to classical, to funk, and to blues soundscapes. As The Sultan likes to say about these performances, "What you’re hearing will be for the first time and the last!"
