Biography

www.senaya.ca

Once upon a time in the world of the imagination, there was Senaya, a half-blood, who comes from the country where negritude originated and is deeply rooted.

She was born in the city of Dakar, Senegal, the child of a Guadeloupean mother and Senegalese father. Out of that bi-cultural blend emerged a multi-faceted rising star exuding creativity, Senaya.

She is a singer, composer, author, poet and guitarist. In a phrase “a self-taught artist of a thousand flavours.” In her musical life so far, Senaya has already crossed one half of Earth, stopping along the way to relish and absorb the culture, but especially the music, of the many places she has visited and lived – to learn the musical traditions.

A committed humanist, Senaya is engaged in many humanitarian causes, not the least of which is human rights and justice for one and for all.

A self-described “artist without borders” unencumbered by national or international barriers, Senaya’s cross-cultural and multilingual attributes have enabled her to create music synonymous with her image and worldview. They encompass cultures and music, which incorporate American Blues, the rhythms of Africa and the Caribbean, Jazz, Soul, Funk, Folk, Pop and R'n’B. Her repertoire is eclectic.

Endowed with charisma, “Senaya is a veritable talent, a commanding performer with a warm, smooth, distinct voice.” That’s how music critics and fans describe this authentic, fresh artist. That’s always evident in her melodious stylings…v

Wherever there’s a musical Groove, there’s good music, there is Senaya. If you love good music, you’ll love Senaya. Wherever there’s music that touches the Soul, there’s Senaya. Catch her in concert when she comes to your town.
