Celebrate Senegalese Independence Day with Pape Mbaye!
Serving up a heavenly cocktail of African music – catchy, soulful, energetic & powerful. This live show is a feast for the senses – bright traditional African costumes & irresistibly danceable songs. The evening will be hosted by Pape Mbaye – the acclaimed multi-instrumental percussionist, playing Djembe, Sabar, Balafon & Guitar. His beaming smile is as well loved as his wide musical talents. It’s an infectious smile that seems to go hand-in-hand with the West African rhythms that lie at the root of his music. Pape Mbaye will bring the the magic of West Africa to his audience – infused with Latin, reggae and jazz, inspired & led by this uncontainable master percussionist. Captivating and hypnotic, these are the sounds of a culture steeped in magic, ritual and a strong spirituality. They’re the sounds that bring people together, that celebrate, commemorate and rejoice a world of music from jazz to R’n’B to pop. And they’re the sounds that Pape has made since childhood.
Also part of the celebrations, Yacou Mbaye’s dance troupe will be doing a special performance!
