A key developer of the mbalax style of Senegalese dance music, multi-instrumentalist Abdou Mboup is a longtime ambassador of Senegal’s musical tradition. Having collaborated with the likes of Nina Simone, Harry Belafonte, Jean-Luc Ponty, and Afrika Bambaataa, Mboup, who performs with his new band Waakaw, marries jazz with a virtuosic mastery of the West African kora.
