Biography

Salam was founded in 1998 in Zichuinchor, Senegal. At that time Thierno Barry played at cultural evenings and at the Alliance Franco/Senegal, together with another guitar player.Thierno wanted more, however, so he started an adventurous journey, alone with his guitar. He moved to Abéné, a small village near Casamance river, where he met a fabulous percussion player. A new Salam was born.Salam is inspired by the sounds of the Casamance. The rich musical traditions of the Mandinka and Diola tribes have a large influence on the style of Salam. A style they call “African folk”.
