Samba Sene and Diwan: African Dreams
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Diverse international collection of musicians, led by charismatic Senegalese singer Samba Sene. Exuberant fusion of funky mbalax/Afrobeat grooves, with undercurrents of ska, rock and Senegalese soul. Influences include former mentor Baaba Maal, Bob Marley, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, Alpha Blondy and Aswad. Songs cover a range of subjects including love, equal rights, homelessness and outright celebration. Uplifting and upbeat, this is world music with a West African heart and soul. Dancing encouraged! 'Exuberant, richly layered set' ★★★★ (Scotsman). 'Top quality world music' ★★★★★ (EdinburghSpotlight.com). Ages 18+.
