Sensational Senegalese soul-rocker

Master percussionist, Senegalese born singer-songwriter and performer Elage Diouf settled in Canada in 1996 to pursue a musical career that is still growing today.

His music – a blend of pop, world, blues, folk and asiko — thrives at the artistic crossroad of artists like Carlinhos Brown, Peter Gabriel, and Andres Cepeda. The musicality of the wolof language explains his singing mainly in his mother tongue.

Wholehearted in his artistic approach, charismatic, authentic and easygoing in his personal as well as his public life, people love him, and he clearly loves them back. His live performances are noticed thanks to his knack at inciting public participation by dancing, by singing, and by inviting people to come up on stage and dance with him. The warmth and remarkable quality of his voice as well as his varied influences make him a unique artist.

Part of the Extended Play series:
World Music Wednesday — Extended Play is a series of free concerts curated by the Old Town School of Folk Music and funded by the Chicago Community Trust. Extended Play presents high calibre world music artists at three venues across the city; The Old Town School of Folk Music, the Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, and the DuSable Museum of African American History. Artists are selected in close consultation with partner venues to ensure that they reflect the programming objectives and mission of all institutions. Artists will perform for three consecutive days in these venues in an effort to make the significant cultural programming at the Old Town School of Folk Music available to other institutions and communities on the South and West sides of Chicago. Extended Play will present three artists at all three venues in 2017.
