Robert Gosier

Player, Composer, Producer

Rob’s last name, Gosier, is a French word meaning “throat.” In ancient thought, the throat is a chakra, one of the energy centers of the human body. The throat represents the function of honest, open communication and expression.

As a musician, Robert Gosier brings a true feeling of musical understanding to the songs he plays and writes. Rob is a highly skilled guitarist; his sound is rich and beautiful. In his hands the instrument at times gives off rhythmically impressive sheets of information, at others, pinpoint rhythms of sensitive precision.

As a composer, Rob’s tender love song “Key to My Heart” is part of our Radikal Revolution 3-Album Songbook. Rob also created the music that became our dance song, “Brick City Genius.”

To record with Rob as player or producer, or to bring his music to your gig, you can click on Contact Us or reach out to him on Facebook under Robert Gosier.

Professor Baya

Artiste Extradordinaire de l’Afrique

We wrote the above description of our percussionist, Professor Sompohi Baya, in French  because he is from Ivory Coast on the continent of Africa — where they speak French. Also, because Professor Baya is an extraordinary artist who is trained and triumphant in painting, sculpture, stonework, ironwork, and more. My favorite works of his are the recycled pieces, made from milk cartons and other materials. His handmade percussive instruments crafted from gourds are of top quality I also enjoy his raffia pieces, fashioned using grass mats weaved in his hometown in Ivory Coast. His current artistic directive, in the creative period of his career that’s happening now, is called “Glalogy”. The “Gla” is what is commonly known in U.S. American culture as the “African mask”. In Ivory Coast, the Gla is the spiritual connection to the ancestors.  Professor Baya teaches that the European church evolved from the African spiritual system, and this phenomenon is displayed when you take the Gla and turn it upside down. See? The view turns from an African mask to an image of a gothic church. Buy a Baya today! For more information about Professor Sompohi Baya, go to his Facebook site under “Sompohi Baya” or call him at 917-325-7715.
