A rare opportunity to experience a part of Senegalese music history!

Zale Seck was born into a griot family in Senegal. His role in life is

historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and musician. Learning singing, percussion and guitar is all part of a griot’s life.

His talent and charisma made him a guru of the senegalese musical scene joining famous groups in the eighties, L’Étoile 2000 de Dakar and the legendary Orchestra Baobab

His own particular style, mbalax dagou, is inspired from mbalax, the popular music of Sénégal. His success crossed borders over Senegalese borders and he toured extensively throughout Europe as an independent artist.
