Bass Thioung is a Senegalese solo musician noted for his rhythmic sounds. With his strong griot voice, he breathes new life into centuries-old Teranga melodies, which he enhances and diversifies as he evolves on a popular style known as mbalakh.
His moniker “thioung” comes from the thioung instrument he enjoys playing, a native percussion instrument with a distinct rhythm. Bass Thioung is one of Mbalakh’s most stunning promises.
