Hervé Samb - Teranga (CRISTAL RECORDS 2018)

A subtle composer and guitarist with the instinct of a gifted musician, Dakar-born Herve Samb had multiple collaborations (Jimmy Cliff, Meshell Ndegeocello, Oumou Sangaré, Amadou & Mariam, David Murray, Marcus Miller, Salif Keïta, Lisa Simone and many others), took part in over 100 albums, released the critically-acclaimed gems Cross Over (2009), Kharit (2012) and Time To Feel (2013) and now introduces Teranga and his “Jazz Sabar” concept, a project dear to this heart.

With Teranga, Herve Samb introduces his “Jazz Sabar” concept. Here, Senegalese dance welcomes jazz music, and sabar, a typical local percussion, discloses the contemporary vitality of African music. An invitation to travel between tradition and modernity, served by a host of young talents and timeless artists.
