Walter Scalzone Releases Brand New Single “African Baby”

They say the whole world is a big neighborhood, and Walter Scalzone has been around the block quite a few times!

Walter grew up in a small town near Naples, Italy, discovering music at a young age. He was inspired by the local Nigerian immigrant community, who introduced him to drumming. For these people, playing wasn’t only as a way to make music: it was also about connecting, building a community.

Walter’s life journey led him to Dubai, where he became the number one percussionist on the scene. Since then, Walter continued to travel through the world, playing spellbinding rhythms. He uses unique instruments, like the handpan, electronic djembe, and his spectacular customized water drums.

With such a successful career under his belt, Walter never forgot his roots. He started the WS Foundation, as a way to give back to the very same community that gave him so much growing up. Besides financial support and various workshops and events, the foundation also releases music. “African Baby” is a new song from Walter and a true landmark for this project.

The track features lush melodies that soar through the mix, combining modern dance grooves with ancestral percussion styles. Walter’s inventive rhythms are the star under the spotlight. His playing is energetic, connecting with the heart and soul of the audience.
