Elzo Jamdong

BIOGRAPHY

Elhadji Diallo, better known by his stage name Elzo Jamdong, is a Senegalese hip-hop singer-songwriter from Dakar’s Plateau area.

He grew up in a musical family, with jazz and Cuban music-loving father and a keyboard-playing brother.

In 2006, he went to Lille, France, after finishing his Bac, and founded the Jamdong collective with other Dakar-based student pals. He is a multilingual performer who speaks Wolof, French, and English.

While still a student at the University of Poitiers, he released his debut solo single, “Free Dope,” in 2014. The track was a hit, and in 2015 he released an EP called “Free Season,” which allowed him to go on a national tour in Senegal and fill the renowned hall of the Theater National Sorano twice in a row, as well as perform in France and Italy.

Elzo released his debut worldwide album, “Freengdom,” in May 2016, a mix of fast flows over hip-hop, afrobeat, and assiko elements. In 2018, he returned with the ultra-personal album “Macina” and the EP “Freeseason 2,” which earned him the male artist of the year prize at the Galsen hip hop awards in 2019.
