2013 – Chief Boima (NYC)

chief_boima

Chief Boima is a Sierra Leonean-American electronic musician, DJ, writer, and outspoken advocate for the cutting-edge digital music coming out of many parts of the world today.

Currently based in New York, Boima began his international DJ career on a self-initiated travel stint to connect with like-minded artists around the world. From the beginning, his performances integrated a diverse array of global musical styles, inspired by the parties he knew growing in a close knit African immigrant community in the United States.

Settling down in the San Francisco Bay Area, he became a resident DJ at Little Baobab nightclub, and grew to be an internationally respected figure in the promotion of various “dance music” styles from around the world such as Coupe Decale, Cumbia, Kuduro, and Champeta. In 2006, he was hired to be the tour DJ for Michael Franti and Spearhead’s Yell Fire Tour. This experience opened the door to many opportunities, and in the following years, he would come to play at venues such as Uberlingua, Peligrosa, Que Bajo, Global Player, Secousse, Summer Stage, and The Lincoln Center in cities as diverse as Dakar, Melbourne, Tijuana, London, New York, Abu Dhabi, and Stockholm

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
