Sam Kelly is the founder member and creative force behind the legendary London based Afro-Funk band Cymande, who have been sampled by Afrika Bambaataa, De La Soul, The Fugees, Grandmaster Flash, and Kool Herc, amongst others. Cymande debuted in the USA supporting Soul star Al Green, playing The Apollo in Harlem before appearing on USTV's legendary coast-to-coast series Soul Train. Cymande 2 reformed for many good gigs recently and are soon to move in a new direction. Drummer Sam Kelly has played with artistes diverse as Chaka Khan, Robert Plant, Gary Moore, Dr John, Desmond Dekker, Eddie Floyd, Ben E King, and Dorothy Moore; in a list that is too long to impart here. He is quite simply the most versatile percussionist in the UK music scene today. Sam also plays in Sam Kelly's Station House, a cool Funk outfit who continue to record and tour to this day.
