Samba Sene and Diwan at Leith Folk Club
The perfect antidote to cold, dark January nights - Edinburgh's favourite Senegalese band bring their own special brand of sunshine with original reggae infused music with sparkling Afrobeats and irresistible dance grooves.

Led by charismatic Senegalese singer Samba Sene, Diwan is a diverse international collection of musicians, who share a global outlook and love of West African rhythms.   An exuberant fusion of funky mbalax/Afrobeat grooves, with undercurrents of ska and reggae; original songs with impassioned vocals and infectious guitar licks.  

Musician Samba Sene was born in Senegal but moved to Scotland ten years ago.  A hugely engaging singer, his style is strongly influenced by a wide range of music, from traditional to funk, rock and ska.  His influences include former mentor Baaba Maal, Bob Marley, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, Alpha Blondy and Aswad. Original songs cover a range of subjects including love, equal rights and outright celebration. Uplifting and upbeat.

Time to get your Senegalese groove on, Leith!
