• Yacine Boulares, Saxophone and Bass Clarinet
• Nasheet Waits, Drums
• Vincent Segal, Cello and Percussions

Saxophonist Yacine Boulares and French 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 variations on 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.
