Born in Camagüey, Cuba, to Haitian parents, Mel Semé began his musical career in the Baptist church of his town hand in hand with his brothers and in the company of older musicians who performed a kind of Latin gospel influenced by the missionaries who came often to Cuba from the southern United States. He began composing at an early age and learning multiple instruments among which the guitar, piano, and drums stood out.

Mel Semé has shared the stage with Youssou Ndour, Steward Copeland, Kymani Marley, Giovanni Hidalgo, Nicholas Payton, Steve Coleman, Fito Paez, and Damien Rice, among others. He is the leader of the Black Gandhi group and participates in projects such as Man Ex Maqina, Barcelona Percussion Project, and Skyland. He is currently touring actively with his group Gone Gone Beyond and is a drummer for the Bardia Charaf Quartet.

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting music programs for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.
