Samba Sene & Diwan
PLEASE NOTE: ADVANCE TICKET SALES HAVE NOW ENDED BUT THERE ARE STILL TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR.
A special set at one of Edinburgh's most unusual venues for Edinburgh Fringe.
Charismatic Senegalese singer Samba Sene is originally from Dakar, but has been a fixture on Edinburgh's music scene for many years.
His music is an exuberant fusion of funky mbalax/Afrobeat grooves, with undercurrents of ska and reggae; original songs with impassioned vocals, infectious guitar licks and irresistible dance grooves.
Sene's influences include former mentor Baaba Maal, Bob Marley, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, Alpha Blondy and Aswad. The songs cover a range of subjects from love, equal rights to outright celebration. Uplifting and upbeat, this is world music with a Senegalese heart & soul.
