Pape Mbaye, and his eight-piece band Chosani Afrique, bring some of the magic of West Africa to their audiences - a night of Latin, reggae and jazz, inspired and led by this uncontainable master percussionist. Pape was born into the special Griot cast. From 1976-1999 he was head drummer of the village of Yoff in Senegal, and was a percussionist and dancer with L'Ensemble Traditionelle Sorano, L'Orchestre Nationale du Senegal and Back to Africa. Seven years ago he left Senegal, West Africa, to make a new home in Sydney, Australia.
