Benyoro had quite an interesting month. In mid-November we played at the Bear Creek Music and Art Festival and had a blast! We also participated in the first Mandé SuperJam organized by our djembe player Luke Quaranta. The set featured members of Toubab Krewe and Kreative Pandemonium as well as special guests Balla Kouyaté and Raja Kassis. A true meeting of the minds…check out a video here!
We also had the honor of playing for a holiday party thrown by our good friends Afropop Worldwide. We had a blast! If you couldn’t be there, you can still read their recap here and contribute to support some amazing music journalism.
Stay tuned for 2015 tour dates coming soon!
Our debut album is now available on Bandcamp, iTunes, and CD Baby. Check it out and spread the word!
Our self-titled debut album is now available for pre-order at Bandcamp. Pre-order now and you get an immediate download of three preview tracks! Get it here.
We’re super excited to be releasing our debut album on July 8th, so we’re celebrating a little early at Meridian 23! It’s going to be an amazing night of music, with our good friends No Small Money Brass Band bringing their ebullient, brass-heavy highlife to the party.
This will also be the ONLY opportunity to buy a physical copy of our debut album prior to the release! And if CDs seem a little passé to you, we’re also offering a FREE digital download of the album to the first 20 people who buy tickets in advance!
E-mail benyoromusic (at) gmail.com for tickets.
We’re super excited to announce that we’ve extended our California tour with shows in Big Sur and Los Angeles! Check the “Shows” section for details. We’re also really happy to be on the line-up for Bear Creek Music and Art Festival. Stay tuned for more details and southeast shows to come!

Happy new year! We just announced a show at Rockwood Music Hall on February 8th (midnight show, so technically early February 9th). See you all there!
We just finished tracking our album yesterday! It’s sounding absolutely amazing, but we’ve still got a long way to go though…mixing, mastering, artwork, manufacturing, etc. Help us complete it by contributing and sharing! http://igg.me/at/benyorodebut/x/3713939
