“My music is for the whole world to enjoy. It touches the heart, whatever the language. With upbeat songs that combine many cultures’ influences, sounds that are warm, with good dancing rhythms, sounds that make you want to move and feel great. This is what I want for myself, my family, my planet,” – Élage Diouf

Master percussionist, Senegalese-born singer-songwriter and performer Élage Diouf moved to Canada in 1996 to pursue a musical career that continues to grow and flourish today. A renowned star in his native Senegal, he officially made a name for himself in Canada in 2010 with his first solo album, Aksil (“welcome” in wolof). The album received numerous accolades, including a JUNO and a FELIX Award – both for Best World Music Album.
