Revolution Sabar is the debut album from the Senegalese fusion group Aba Diop & The Yermande Family: an explosively percussion-forward ensemble effort showcasing the electrifying polyrhythms of the ancient sabar drum. At the crossroads of east and west, traditional and modern, Revolution Sabar is a fresh and mesmerizing offering from the deep lineage of griot talking drum culture.

Revolution Sabar is a drum-driven Afro-pop fusion album from the Senegalese percussionist composer, sabar maestro, drum maker and griot lineage holder Aba Diop. The record features the sparkling African lute-harp played by the renowned “Jimi Hendrix of kora” Noumoucounda Cissoko, jazz-inflected guitar riffs by New Yorker newcomer Jason Hosier, and bass virtuoso Thierno Sarr with support from Senegalese players Samba Ndokh, master of the tama drum, and smoldering backup vocals from Zeyna Diop.
