More Info:

Diogal (Diogal Sakho) is a Senegalese musician and singer. He was born in 1970 in Ngor, a small Lebou fishing village in Senegal. He learned to play the guitar and began writing his own songs 1. In 1996, Loy Ehrlich (who has worked with Touré Kunda, Youssou N'Dour and Geoffrey Oryema, to name but a few) spotted his talent and helped him record his first two cassettes, intended for the Senegalese market (Xarrit Taffa and Mbaryi). Since 1998, Diogal has lived in France. He has collaborated with Lokua Kanza, Louis Winsberg, Loy Ehrlich, Didier Malherbe, Daby Touré... Diogal is an author, composer and performer. He composes and sings, in Wolof, songs at the crossroads of the traditional sounds of his country, Senegal, and contemporary Western music. After releasing two cassettes in Senegal (Xariit Taffa and M'bar-yi), Diogal went on to release two albums in France, Samba alla and Liir (Célulloïd/Mélodie), both acclaimed by the press, supported by FIP and appreciated by professionals. Diogal has collaborated with Lokua Kanza, Wasis Diop, Vincent Segal, Louis Winsberg, Loy Ehrlich, Didier Malherbe, Jean-Philippe Rikiel, Daby Touré, Dan Ar Braz... and, between 1999 and 2007, performed at numerous venues and festivals in France and abroad (Baiser salé, Divan du Monde, Batofar, Glaz'Art, Grenier à Sons, Musée Dapper, Centre culturel français de Dakar..., Chorus des Hauts-de-Seine, Africolor, Primeurs de Massy, Jazz sous les pommiers, AfriCajarc).
