“a bass guitarist from Senegal, who is a must-see..”
Wade, a very talented bass player, singer and composer, takes you on a musical journey from West and North Africa to Ethiopia in his fourth studio album Sultan. The broad spectrum ranges from the "blues" from Mali to Raï, Gnawa, Sufi, soul and film elements, music from Ethiopia to rap and jazz. His versatile and deep-rooted musicality is a key ingredient that is reinvigorating today's jazz scene. His eclectic, highly creative compositions bear witness to this on his latest album and on the major stages of the world.
From Marcus Miller to Gregory Porter
With his extraordinary musical ability, Alune Wade has gone far beyond his Senegalese roots: from collaborations with Marcus Miller to Salif Keïta, Oumou Sangaré or Gregory Porter - he is not only a guest of the best musicians of our time, but also brings in his own compositions professionals from all over the world together - especially from Africa.
His quiet authority and intense power on stage are revealed as he takes the audience on a very special jazz journey, the soundscape of which sparkles with a sophisticated urban finish. Wade draws inspiration from his travels from Paris to the dynamic metropolises of New York and Dakar. A true representative of cosmopolitan music!
