Seydu was born in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone (West Africa). His earliest musical experiences were shaped by that city and by his musical family. His grandfather taught him the secrets of drumming and his mother sang Fullah and Mandingo songs. After performing with the National Dance Troupe of Sierra Leone, Seydu moved to Nigeria and then to Spain, where he played and recorded with a number of Spanish bands. After leaving his first band, Bambara, (a reggae-oriented group) he started to develop his own musical ideas based on the traditional music of his childhood and the diverse musical influences he had encountered in his eclectic career
