Accompanied by a haunting blend of blues and folk music, singer/song writer Saadi Halil could not help but sing back the history, culture, and philosophy of life he lived and breathed during his travels. The ability to absorb a lifetime of experience and express it authentically and passionately through song is cornerstone to Saadi’s writing, and personified by a voice weathered and wise beyond its years. Driven by a global perspective and an ear tuned to world rhythm, the First Son of World Folk was born. In the spirit of Woody Guthrie, Bob Marley, and Michael Franti, Saadi sends messages of humanity, sorrow and love through songs that catch the ear with undeniable soul. Whether it is Delta blues, Spanish cumbia, Portuguese love songs, French jazz or Swahili lullabies, Saadi invites the world to embrace our differences and celebrate our similarities.
