Filled with irresistible rhythms that make fans bask in waves of contagious euphoria, Élage Diouf is a sensational Senegalese soul rocker. Recipient of outstanding awards: CBC’s Artiste Révélation Radio-Canada, JUNO World Music Album of the Year, FÉLIX World Music Album of the Year, and SOCAN Hagood Hardy – World Music prize, he officially made a name for himself in Canada in 2010! 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.
