Dave Smith

Dave Smith is best known for his work with Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, traditional Sabar drumming from The Gambia and Afro-Blues group Juju. As co-founder of Loop Collective Dave is part of some of the most adventurous, and accessible, musical projects in the UK including Cloudmakers Trio, Outhouse, MA and Splice. As co-leader of Outhouse Ruhabi, featuring five Gambian Sabar drummers, and Sabar dance driven Dakar/London band Fofoulah, he is the man behind the most fruitful collision of West African drum music and European jazz yet to surface.
