Samite

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Samite is a little like Francis Bebey in that he overdubs both his own voice and various African and Western instruments (including the big East African litungu lyre, finger piano, and flutes). While he has a slight, slight folky edge in places and is not a strong solo singer, his overdubbed polyphonic vocals and most of his instrumental work is gorgeous. ~ John Storm Roberts, Rovi

His music and his voice is amazing. I don't see why the Pandora description says he's not a strong solo singer I've never seen any other pandora description say this about any other artist. His voice is much stronger than many.
Pandora's description of Samite does not do him justice. One cannot judge his music until they've actually heard him in concert. He had the audience get up and dance! I am grateful to have had that experience!
Absolutley breath taking, beautiful !

I grew up listening to Samite. I love his music. They kinda take me back home.

Ah, who doesn't love the land of Africa?

Watching and listening to him in concert gives me so much joy. He has that effect on multitudes and crosses age lines wonderfully. What dub? He sounds the same in concert.

I have always loved Samite, I like his African sensibility, and I like the way he mixes in other sensibilitie s as he is exposed to them. Real music never stops exploring.
I hope Pandora can get more of his previous work as well - Pearl of Africa Reborn and Dance My Children Dance are wonderful.

paul683: Partly because Pandora has a terrible African music selection. And partly because he sings (at least at times) with strong nods to the English and American folk and religious traditions. For example, "Yazala Abambuti" is the hymn "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing."
Samite blessed us in Wisconsin with a concert at UWSP. It was amazing and FREE. I've loved him ever since. Great world music.
Samite is all about African music check his website samite.com or Google him. I don't understand why I'm getting English folk songs and sea shantys on my Samite radio...
