Event

Samba Sene and Diwan at Edinburgh FC / EFC
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, infectious guitar licks and irresistible dance grooves.
 
Musician Samba Sene was born in Senegal but moved to Scotland in the late 90s.  A hugely engaging performer with a way with catchy tunes, 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 and featured on BBC Radio 3s World on 3.
