The Shop is a Toronto-based jazz quintet consisting of Bureh Bollo-Kamara on guitar, Connor Moe on saxophones & flutes, Omar Gittens on the drums, Racha Moukalled on the vibraphone, and Carlo Santo Domingo on the bass. The ensemble plays original compositions that borrow elements from modern gospel, pop punk, and several subgenres of African music and combine them with the quintet’s mutual foundation in jazz. Formerly known as Bureh Bk & The Shop, the ensemble was established in early 2020 by Bureh. In 2021, the group recorded their debut EP “Forward Motion” and released it in 2022. The Shop continues to perform at venues throughout Toronto with the goal of becoming a staple in the Canadian jazz scene.
