Bio

Senegalese-Japanese afrobeat band formed in Japan. Omar
Gaindefall from Senegal and Yusuke Tsuda from Japan met at an impromptu
performance in 2010 and have been performing together ever since. They
released their first album “Begue” in 2014 after realizing how important
is it for many people to hear the sound of Omar’s music style “Griot”,
which has spanned several generations in Senegal. They alone performed a
successful live show in Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan. They also performed
in the opening ceremony of the 8th African Festival Yokohama 2015 which
African Ambassadors to Japan attended. Having done many tours not only
in Tokyo but also throughout Japan, they continue to discover and
perform new styles of African music.

Omar Gaindefall
Born in Senegal, Omar is an all-round musician who is not only capable at mastering percussion instruments like the sabar, djembe and talking drum, but is also re-known for his singing and dancing skills. Born in the capital Dakar, he was raised in the Chine area amongst a family of musicians, where his natural talent for playing percussion instruments soon led him to play at religious ceremonies and celebrations. Not only being involved with tours as a djembe soloist with the Senegal National Dance Companies, he also participated in various artists recordings for popular music in the world. He performed at the opening ceremony of the African Cup of Nations 2004 with the group he led. Since 2005, his performing base is Japan and Senegal. There seems no stopping the energy and charm of this group that is attracting fans from all over.
