Salah has fostered a love for music and percussion from a very young age.  His exposure to world music has shaped his own style of percussion playing, particularly in his specialization of djembe, conga, and drums.  As a hand and drum kit percussionist of many acts and local bands, including Afrobeat Project and Nile Groove, Salah plays a steady groove with hands and sticks.
