London-based Awalé returns with a new sound, Senegalese soul. Biram Seck’s soaring voice evokes messages of love and peace, underpinned by heavenly poly-rhythm groove explorations. Intense and spiritual Sabar Senegalese percussion and Afro-Latin drums conversations, weaving intricate guitar patterns and horn lines with catchy bass riffs.
Like spinning kaleidoscope of sounds, their tunes travel from afrobeat to soul, deep Afro-jazz to Latin. Awalé is on a mission to experience happiness together in these fractured times.
‘A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration, bringing together Afro-Latin, funk and soul elements with a Senegalese twist. The wonderful voice of Biram Seck and Thibaut Remy’s compositions make for an unmissable combo. Must See!’ – Tim Garcia, Jazz FM/Musica Macondo.
‘Most impressive, echoes a lot of greats like Orchestra Baobab and Youssou N’Dour but with very much it’s own sound’ – Jamie Renton, DJ, fROOTS
