Steve Lehman & Sélébéyone

The new collaborative project Sélébéyone takes the conversation between jazz and hip hop to “feverish new heights” (The WIRE), drawing from Senegalese Rap, French Spectral Music, Modern Jazz, Underground Hip-Hop, Interactive Electronic and beyond. Composer and saxophonist Steve Lehman leads the international ensemble, which features HPrizm (vocals, English), Gaston Bandimic (vocals, Wolof), Maciek Lasserre (sax/electronics), Carlos Homs (keyboards), Chris Tordini (bass) and Damion Reid (drum set).
