Dave Smith

Dave Smith is best known for his work with traditional Sabar drumming from The Gambia, Afro-Blues group Juju and Robert Plant presents Sensational Space Shifters. As co-founder of Loop Collective Dave is part of some of the most adventurous, and accessible, musical projects in the UK. As co-leader of Outhouse Ruhabi, featuring five Gambian Sabar drummers, and Sabar dance driven Dakar/London band Fofoulah, he is the man behind the most fruitful collision of West African drum music and European jazz yet to surface.
