CHEIKH TAIROU M'BAYE
SAT, OCT 7
Traditional Senegalese Sabar musicians Cheikh M'Baye & Sing Sing Rhythms are a drum and dance company of Wolof griots from Medina, Senegal. Founded in 1987, the group is named for their ancestor, Sing Sing Faye, the first master drummer of the Cape Vert peninsula. They have performed and toured extensively in Africa, Europe, Canada, the Virgin Islands and the U.S., and have recorded with such luminaries as Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour, Randy Weston, Jack DeJohnette, Angelique Kidjo and Craig Harris. Their CD, Mame Bouna, is a true representation of the traditional rhythms of the Wolof people of Senegal.
