Zale Seck, an internationally recognised multi-talented musician, will be in touring in Australia in November/December 2018. Originally from Senegal, now based in Montreal, Zale will be sharing his unique blend of traditional and modern Senegalese music. A master drummer, singer, guitarist and storyteller, Zale was born into a griot family in Senegal. His role in life is historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and musician. Singing, percussion and guitar is all part of a griot’s life and he is recognised as a guru of the Senegalese musical scene since the 1980s. He has played with international greats such as 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. His extraordinary vocals and musicianship is an experience too good to miss. He will be joined this evening by a line-up of master musicians including master percussionist Yacou Mbaye, also from Senegal, now based in Sydney.
