Saleem & the Music Lovers formed in 2005 with a simple goal to blend the live band tradition with elements of modern hip-hop. In the process of discovering their voice, they began to infuse elements of jazz, soul, and rhythm blues into their music. Saleem provides the perfect counterpoint to the melodies crafted by Topix, Sinseer, and Tangie Bee, The Music Lovers. Together, their powerful performances have won them fans from east to west and abroad, making them one of the most highly regarded groups on the underground scene.
