Yet working with people in highly vulnerable situations asks for a broad range of skills, not only musicianship. That's why we're organizing the Music Leadership Summit this October. Drawing on 20 years [...]

Thione Seck, Mbalax Superstar, Dead at 66

18 maart, 2021|English, Nieuws|

(bron: Afropop worldwide) Covid-19 has felled another African giant. Thione Ballago Seck was among the most beloved of all Senegal’s incomparable vocalists. Although lesser known internationally than his countrymen Youssou N’Dour and Baaba Maal, Seck was no less brilliant. He called his style mbalax, pur et dur, pure and strong. And it was.

Born into a Wolof griot family, Seck came by his vocal chops through heritage. Originally a member of Orchestra Baobab, he helped to pioneer hybrid West African pop [...]

The results of the collaborative efforts are to be presented in a professional setting abroad, if possible also in Germany. The funding cannot offer full financing, that is why an application [...]
