Bio

Biography.

My name is Ruben Semmoh. I am the frontman/leadsinger/ guitarist  and bandleader of the Afro- Carib Ensemble.

I was born in Paramaribo de capitol city of Surinam on 12-05-1955. At the age of fifteen i moved to the Netherlands and studied music at the jazz conservatorium. As a singer/songwriter in search of his roots, i started playing Kawina music. This is traditional music from Surinam played by slaves during slavery in Surinam.  I was challenged  by the idea  of composing and playing  songs  in this genre . A collaboration with  different styles  ( latin, jazz, funk, classic  and pop)  resulted  in a unique sound, groove and feel. This is the origin  of  the Album Dansi Nanga YU and the start of the Afro- Carib Ensemble.
