Salim Jah Peter

Salim Jah Peter hails from Niger in Africa. In 1989 he founded New Generation and a year later he got in contact with African superstar Féla Kuti in Nigeria, From 1994 till 1998 he was a member of the afro-reggae band Mystic Vibration. Over the years he met artists like Alpha Blondy, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Rita Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, Levy Ijahman, Lucky Dube, Sista Carol, and Michael Rose. He developed a style of his own, Hayé Hayé Groove, a powerful mix of traditional Nigerian music, blues and afro beat. Since 2004 he lives in Paris, released the album “The Vultures” in 2007, followed by the album “Hold-up Of Power” in 2009. He’s very active on different levels, and is a fervent defender of our planet’s nature. The album “Nature” is his latest effort.

Salim Jah Peter – Nature

The fourteen track album was recorded in Paris and is a treat for all who like to listen to traditional one drop reggae with African spices. Think Alpha Blondy, Lucky Dube! “Amaanaa” is his joyful expression for the birth of his twins, love that track! The key tune has to be the title track. His concern for our planet is displayed with conviction, which comes across a Bob Marley-esque riddim through the speakers and makes you instantly move your feet. The sacred “Boukei” is a tribute to all who have died because of oppression throughout the world. “Soborro” -hear the flies!-, a mesmerizing tune in combination with Cheick Tidiane Seck, deals with the enormous problems of malaria.

African riddims

“Ateideibey Jungle” is an uptempo dancehall/techno flavoured track with a message for the youth, and is out of balance with the rest of the album. Fast forward to “Yafama”, a relaxed skanking tune pon a pure African riddim. In that tune he humbly asks his parents to forgive him because he choose to become a musician. More African riddims on the autobiographical “Paris Life”. “Polygamie” is an uptempo song, criticizing polygamy because it can cause bad conditions for the youth. He goes back to his childhood on “Gam City” and on “Annga Sandey” he gets vocal assistance from Winston McAnuff. It’s a cry out to the African dictators to listen and respect the people and their ancestors. On the dub track of that tune -“Dub Annga Saandey”- he delivers some really outstanding dub treats.
