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”.

Salam fight for world peace through their music,
they warn us for the dangers of drugs
and they sing about love…
Peace and love, oneness of heart and soul for everybody.

Salam are:
Thierno Barry – Guitar and vocals
Eve Hase – Violin
Diakaria Badji – Djembé
Akassa Mane – Sewrouba
Matar Guaye – Guitar
