US Tour: Abu Sadiya

French saxophonist Yacine Boularès and cellist Vincent Segal present an original suite of variations re-imagining the Tunisian healing trance music – Stambeli – for their trio with American drummer Nasheet Waits. Their original compositions form a series of pieces inspired by the legend of Abu Sadiya. In his wandering search for his enslaved daughter, Abu Sadiya danced and sang his sorrow in the streets of Tunis, becoming the first musician of Stambeli and personifying the collective memory of Sub-Saharan slaves in Tunisia.
