Collected and Performed by Violinist Samuel Nebyu

Samuel, winner of numerous international competitions, was recently featued on WQXR-FM. Born in Hungary of African-American and Jewish-European descent, Samuel spent most of his early childhood in Europe. At 15, he was accepted to Brussels Royal Conservatory of Music where he studied with Igor Oistrakh. Since coming to Philadelphia to study with Eduard Schmieder, Samuel was inspired by his teacher to research African classical composers and found big treasures, which led to a production of this upcoming CD on BCM+D label.
