Élage Diouf

Origin: Senegal

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: World

In 1996, singer and percussionist Élage Diouf left his native Senegal to settle with his brother Karim in Quebec. Soon, the brothers would begin to work on disc and on stage with several local artists, including Loco Locass, Dubmatique, Stefie Shock, Ariane Moffat and Les Colocs, with whom they would record, notably, Tassez-vous de d'là, a song that Élage co-wrote, sang in Wolof, his mother tongue, and for which he received a 1999 SOCAN award. In 2003, the Diouf brothers released the album Dund, following which they collaborated on the creation of the Cirque du Soleil show Delirium. In 2010, Élage Diouf released a solo disc, Aksil, featuring Jenny Salgado, of Muzion, and Jean Leloup.
