Daby Balde is one of Senegalâ€™s best-kept musical secrets, long celebrated at home and now filtering onto the international scene. His amazing arrangements are based on his Fula traditions from the south of the country and feature the fiddle, accordion and flute accompanied by the more familiar West African sounds of the kora, acoustic guitar and percussion. With handsomely rich and beautiful melodies, captivating vocals and a repertoire that ranges from euphoric to melancholic, Daby Balde is a West African star on the rise.
