So, another live recording improvisation from my group Samhada… world music fusion, Africa, India and synths… something strange, something progressive, something traditional… relaxing atmospheres, kaleidoscopes, musical trip… hope you enjoy…
It’s with great pleasure and honor that I want to share with you the official birth of my musical project … along with other great musicians and friends, after years of study and work, born Samhadã … African music, Indian music, progressive music, all together in a special fusion, unclassifiable in its kind … of course I play the kora … This is our first video, a way o different feeling for the kora… thanks
Samhadã is a world music project and a fusion of unclassifiable sound of its kind.
The group was born from the passion and the union of three musicians in its original lineup: Massimo Amato, Andrea Candeloro and Danilo Li Vigni.
Is the result of an intense musical research lasted for years, in the course of time and during live and recording sessions, several musicians are flanked and alternate each time expanding ideas and possibilities.
Samhadã born and developed as the meeting of world music, performed with traditional instruments from different traditions, such as Indian, African and European.
Songs and traditional rhythms, the composition of which goes back centuries if not millennia in the past, blend the most modern atmospheres of synthesized sounds or progressive music.
Instruments from Africa like the kora, from India as the tabla or pakhawaj, from Persia as the santur, join the electric bass, piano and percussion. Voices and flutes, harmonium and melodic, there are so many ideas and so many still more to come.
Samhadã born as the achievement of a sound that takes from everything, but in nothing can be classified. This arrival of musical maturity is therefore the starting point for a new journey.
Currently, the Samhadã members play and record each session in a live, so they are all unique and unrepeatable improvisation of their kind.

Playing the kora on the beach during summer of 2016… a personal interpretation of the african kora song Allah Lake, with a strange kora tuning… thank you!
Playing during summer of 2016 … the video and audio are not mounted in sync … a personal interpretation of the african kora song Bani… thank you!
This video comes from my series of kora video live streaming demonstrations.
The quality of the video is not high, but can be an inspiration in playing the kora.
In this performance, the song Africa played with a very special kora tuning.
So we go on with our small kora videos, to show some particoular variation on the various rhythms.
These short videos – linked to our Instagram Kora Lessons Profile – could be a creative inspiration in accompaniment to the kora lessons.
In this first series of video we will see some unusual variations on the african song Bani.
I was studying some of mine variations on a song of my master Madya, called “Africa”, when suddenly I’ve heard Kelefa Ba calling me…
This peace is like a Raga (indian music raga) for the kora.
I’ve tuned my kora in a special way.
Thinking that world is lost, there is always a little light that shines…!
Inspirated to the painting of Maria Grazia Bornigia “Così bella, così perduta” So beautiful, so lost”!
A special way of feeling Kelefa Ba songs, inspirated by the painting of Maria Grazia Bornigia “Improvvisamente è già inverno” (Suddenly it’s already winter)…
