CHEIKH LO
& band

+ Randolph Mathews

The voice of Senegal’s Cheikh Lô is unique, cosmopolitan and graceful.

Cheikh Lô has forty years of music in his dreadlocks. He started out as a drummer. Born in 1955 in Burkina Faso’s second city, this passionate Senegalese man took his first orchestral steps with Volta Jazz. The ensemble, one of the best in post-independence West Africa, revisited Cuban song, classics from the Congolese Tabu Ley Rochereau and created Creole-style dance pieces.

After working as a session drummer with Papa Wemba he recorded three albums of his own on the Syllart Record label. At the same time he started playing the guitar and discovered other continents – Jamaican reggae, but especially funk, which he mixed with the Senegalese rhythms of mabalax and Ghanaian high-life.

A long time aficionado, Youssou N’Dour produced the album ‘Ne La Thiass’ in 1995 on World Circuit. There was to be a second, ‘Bambay Gueej’ (1998), before he broke with the godfather of Senegalese pop music. Staying with World Circuit, he went on to release ‘Lamp Fall’ (2006) and ‘Jamm’ (2010).

His new album “Balbalou” ( Chapter Two ) has just been released and Cheikh Lo will bring his entire band with him for his first London headline appearance since 2010.

14s – 17s must be accompanied by an adult
