Caught in their “filter bubbles”, they only consider or reconfirm their own point of view. They communicate mostly with people who already agree with them...

This tune explores a lack of openness in some people. Those who fall back on what they know or what they claim to know. It also strives for a world more inclusive of different opinions, ideas, backgrounds.

GINO SITSON "Echo Chamber" Featuring: Manu Dibango, Maria João, René Geoffroy, Sara Caswell, Jody Redhage, Lev ‘Ljova’ Zhurbin and Mike McGinnis

“An extraordinarily pliable voice in settings rich with melody, emotion and rhythm. his gift for melody and his persuasive powers for interpretation establish an instant connection for listeners(…) always fascinating.” Don Heckman – Los Angeles Times

Gino Sitson’s Echo Chamber Echo Chamber is an exciting and energetic combination of new sounds, where percussive grooves and enchanting vocals are intertwined with lyrical melodies. The concept, which has roots in African traditions with hints of classical European and American jazz, makes the music and the experience of listening to it truly unique.

Gino Sitson, PhD

Award-winning, New York-based vocal virtuoso Gino Sitson is from the Bamileke region of Cameroon, Central Africa. His family comes from a long line of musicians known as Ntontas ("players of horns") and his mother is a vocalist and choir director. He and his siblings were introduced to blues, jazz and African traditional music early in life.
Mr. Sitson is a pioneer of a new generation of multi-culturally influenced African musicians who are integrating into their musical styles their own exciting yet bewildering welter of "in-between" living experiences (north/south, tradition/modernity, 20th/21st century). His daring musical project combines in a most innovative way jazz, gospel, blues and traditional African polyphonic rhythms and melodies. By freely combining his trademark vocal acrobatics with a breathtakingly creative command of oral and body percussions and miscellaneous effects, Mr. Sitson forged an eloquent vocabulary capable of communicating far beyond any limits of language or custom. Through his vocal wizardry, he stunningly creates an endless range of sounds and atmospheres. Sitson’s seamless four- octave range travels from a soulful, resonantly masculine tenor with woodwind-like over- tones to a high-soaring, nearly genderless spiritual wail, a feat that recalls Brazil’s Milton Nascimento, another deep-rooted yet restlessly protean, jazz-inflected shape-changer. He has laid down tracks or shared the stage with Manu Dibango, Ron Carter, Papa Wemba, Wally Badarou, John Scofield, Geri Allen, David Gilmore, Haruko Nara, Bobby McFerrin, Frank Wess, Ray Lema, Craig Harris, James Hurt, Antoine Roney, John William, Mario Canonge, Wallace Roney, Brice Wassy, Oliver NGoma, Exile One, Steve Potts, So Why? (Featuring Youssou NDour, Papa Wemba, Wally Badarou, Jabu Khanyile & Bayete, Lourdes Van-Dunem, and Lucky Dube), La Compagnie Creole, among others.
He appeared in the 2009 PBS documentary film “The Music Instinct: Science and Song”, featuring Bobby McFerrin, Daniel Levi- tin, Oliver Sacks, Daniel Barenboim, and Yo-Yo Ma. A member of Chamber Music America, he is regularly engaged for movie scores and commercials. He made several TV appearances and has composed music for the noted children’s TV show, Dora The Explorer (Nickelodeon). Since 2006, Mr. Sitson is a Cultural Arts ambassador for the city of Miami (Florida).
Meanwhile, his international career continues apace. He has received "Parents Choice Silver Medal Honor Award" in 2004 and nominations from the WMCE (World Music Chart Europe), the RFI Awards 2000. His recent output includes soundtracks to Betrayal (Kevin Ngooh) and Blue Lotus (Dayo Ayodele); jingles for France Television and France 3... Mr. Sitson performed at the Carnegie Hall with his own group in 2008. But aside from musical performances, he leads vocal workshops served by his amazing vocal technique, his musical knowledge and his desire to share his love for vocal explorations. Gino Sitson has developed workshops for professional as well as non-professional singers, and also for children. He is a member of the American Society for Ethnomusicology. He holds a PhD in musicology from Paris-Sorbonne University under the supervision of Professor Jean-Marc Chouvel. His work focuses on music cognition, expressive properties of the voice and the process of transmitting music from the ‘black’ diaspora. Among them, he is particularly interested in Gwoka music from Guadeloupe. He is a UNICEF Cameroon Goodwill Ambassador. Under his name, he has already released eight albums.
