Senegambia Rebel is a project born during a journey throughout Senegal and Gambia in 2014 by Leonard P, one of the founders of Florence, Italy-based label Voodoo Rebel. In African culture, music is culturally omnipresent. During Leonard P’s month of passing through villages and fields, he field recorded hours of natural sounds, ceremonies, concerts and various moments of the everyday life in with just a simple mobile and a panoramic mic.
The result was a sonically rich soundbank that Leonard P shared with various members of the VooDoo Rebel label like Piezo (IT), but also some new and exciting producers from different continents like Populous (IT), Reaganomics (USA), and Lumumba (FR), just to name a few. Senegambia Rebel is a voyage through various subjects including Bayefal chants, jam sessions on the beaches, and crowded market sounds. These have all been spliced with modern electronic music elements resulting in nine perfect shaped blends between acoustic instruments like Kora, Jambe or Bolon, with modern synths and 808 drums.
