Little Baobab presents an evening of live Senegalese Blues music!
★ Headed up by the sensational Abdoulaye Samb Minnjiaraby ★
The infectiously energetic music draws elements from the rich Fula tradition interwoven with Rumba, Mbalax, Afro-Latin and deep blues. Abdoulaye began music by the beaches of his country, fabricating his own instrument from scratch, with fishing lines as strings. He has since gone onto tour festivals around Europe.

DJs will be providing worldly grooves to keep people moving going late into the night
