It rocks like hell. Music that wants listeners to have fun. One can dance, one can sing, one can everything.
This artistic cooperative was founded by Mamadou Diouf, a charismatic Senegalese vocalist who has been settled in Poland for years, the most colorful bird in the Polish show business, and a saxophonist Grzegorz Rytka (DAAB, Szwagierkolaska, T.Love, Sydney Polak). As they know everyone in the industry, and everyone in the industry knows them, they managed to gather a multicultural, professional and efficient collective when it comes to concerts and recording productions – in April 2016, the band released the album “Umbada”, placed on the prestigious World Music Charts Europe list among the best albums in Europe.
Mamadou Diouf sang mainly in his mother tongue then, Wolof, telling about longing for the country, love, tradition, respect for another human and the search for enlightenment. Music videos made for several songs from this album are small masterpieces of art coming from a pure heart.
As to the concerts – good energy emanates from every square centimeter of the stage.
