Siama's new record "RIVERS - from the Congo to the Mississippi"  

Check out the Great Reviews!

"RIVERS" is a genre-spanning marvel,
seeded by traditional music of rural DR Congo and soukous dance music and featuring a surprising array of
special guests representing many genres:

JD Steele's gospel harmonies
Nirmala Rajasekar's Indian Saraswati veena and vocals 
Tenzin Ngawang's Tibetan singing, flute and dranyen
Joe Savage on pedal steel  
Jacqueline Ultan on cello
and many more.  

This is an ambitious collection of songs and a delightful adventure. 
You haven't heard anything like it. 

 Banning Eyre of Afropop Worldwide says, "...Siama has found elusive alchemy here. For all its bold collaborative forays, this album feels personal. With humor, candor and confident musical playfulness, Siama is reflecting on a life of motion and change, finding joy in his discoveries, but never losing a certain wistfulness for all that’s been left behind.".
