Alune Wade

BIOGRAPHY

Alune Wade is a Senegalese musician who, through his eclecticism and evident multicultural generosity, has established himself as a stalwart of jazz.

Alune Wade’s diverse and deeply entrenched musicianship is a critical component in reviving the African jazz scene. With his extraordinary musical talent, bassist, vocalist, and composer Alune Wade has taken it far beyond his Senegalese roots.

He takes a musical voyage from West Africa to North Africa via Ethiopia, guided by Arabic-Andalusian sounds, Berber music, and rhythms, blended with Afrobeat, Arabic oriental-melodic maqams, and jazz.

As he leads spectators on his very distinctive jazz voyage, whose soundscape sparkles with a polished urban finish, his calm authority and powerful strength on stage are displayed.

“Sultan,” Alune’s most recent album, is a real example of global music, linking Africa and the Middle East. With its distinctive rhythms and sounds borrowed from jazz, Afrobeat, and Berber music traditions, the record promotes multiculturalism.
