For several decades, Senegalese musicians have been combining their
traditional African rhythms with contemporary musical influences from
around the globe. Around the 1970s, the genre of music known as mbalax
was created. Evolving from the traditional rhythms of the Wolof people,
absorbing influences from the Cuban music that dominated Senegal in the
1960s, and incorporating Western instruments, mbalax continues to be the
pre-eminent music genre in Senegal today, brought to the world stage by
Youssou N'Dour. Other inspirational artists fusing traditional African
music with global sounds include the intensely lyrical Baaba Maal,
Orchestra Baobab and, more recently, hip-hop group, Daara J, who
successfully mix rap with reggae, ragga and even Cuban sounds. In short,
Senegal continues to provide an immense diversity of music for world
audiences. Afro-Tema continues this tradition.
